The first world premiere tour was such a phenomenal success that Middle Ground Theatre Company is presenting a second tour! You don't want to miss your chance to witness 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 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 OSCARnominated Sidney Lumet film with Paul Newman and James Mason.
Contains occasional strong language.
Running time: 2 hours 40 minutes including interval
