The World Stage Premiere of
The Verdict By Barry Reed
Adapted by Margaret May Hobbs
Designed & directed by Michael Lunney
STARRING CLIVE MANTLE, JACK SHEPHERD and RICHARD WALSH in a full cast of fifteen.
The powerful best-selling courtroom thriller that inspired a multi Academy Award-Nominated film.
What price the truth?
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 and the all-powerful Catholic Church, 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.
A stunning courtroom thriller made famous by the five times OSCAR nominated Sidney Lumet film with Paul Newman and James Mason.
Clive Mantle has been a household favourite for over three decades, with regular roles in hit television series Robin Of Sherwood, The Vicar Of Dibley, Mount Pleasant, White Van Man, Game of Thrones and of course Dr Mike Barratt in both Casualty and Holby City.
Jack Shepherd is one of our most celebrated actors and has a distinguished career in theatre, television and film spanning over fifty years. His awards include a Laurence Olivier Theatre Award, a Plays and Players London Critics’ Award, and a Time Out Award. He is probably best known for his portrayal of Detective Superintendent Charles Wycliffe in the hugely popular television series Wycliffe.
The cast also includes Richard Walsh (London’s Burning), Peter Harding, Cassie Bancroft, Tom Roberts
(Emmerdale / 2point4 Children), Veronica Quilligan, Okon Jones, Michael Lunney, Nuala Walsh, Eugenia Caruso and Jog Maher.
