Event Information

UK Tour,
November 2007 - February 2008

Savoy Theatre, London
21 February - 26 April 2008

A double bill of legal dramas written by John Mortomer.

Directed by Christopher Morahan, the writer of Rumpole of the Bailey brings his insider knowledge to this double-bill using barbed wit and judicial humour to show that the law can make an ass of any of us.

THE DOCK BRIEF, an incompetent barrister, Morganhall is asked to represent the lugubrious Mr Fowle who confesses to murdering his jovial wife. Although the two of them rehearse a masterly defence in the cell, when they reach the courtroom everything goes horribly wrong.

EDWIN, retired High Court Judge, Fennimore Truscott can’t break the habit of trying as many people as he can – in his imagination. But when he turns his overly suspicious mind towards his wife’s friendship with the next door neighbour, he opens up a can of worms.
