murder mystery

The  powerful best-selling  courtroom  thriller 
What  price  the  truth?

Following  the  phenomenal  success  of  its  world  premiere  tour,  presented by Middle  Ground  Theatre, who brought you  Agatha Christie’s A Murder Is Announced this is the  second  tour  of  the gripping  and  critically  acclaimed courtroom  sensation The  Verdict.

Frank Galvin is a washed up veteran lawyer and an alcoholic. He is presented with one last chance to redeem himself when he is given an open-and-shut medical malpractice case that no one thinks he can win. Up against the unforgiving medical establishment he courageously refuses an out of court settlement, believing it is negligence that has condemned a young mother. Smelling a cover up, he instead takes the case and the entire legal system to court. Set in the Irish enclave of Boston in 1980, this is a stunning courtroom thriller made famous by the five times OSCAR nominated Sidney Lumet film with Paul Newman and James Mason.

Adapted  by  Margaret  May  Hobbs
Designed  &  directed  by  Michael  Lunney
Starring Ian Kelsey, Denis Lill, Paul Opacic, Christopher Ettridge, Richard Walsh and Karen Drury in  a full cast of fifteen.
