What happens when an unsuccessful murderer meets an even more unsuccessful barrister?
Budgie fancier Herbert Fowle has murdered his wife because she laughed too much, and he is now on trial. His only hope rests with Morgenhall, his court appointed barrister. However, Morgenhall has never won a case. Can Morgenhall change his lifelong losing streak and free Mr Fowle?
The Dock Brief has been performed all around the world, made into a film starring Peter Sellers and acted by two convicted criminals in Alcatraz.
Rapture's new exciting production of this classic play stars Scottish theatre legend and award winning performer John Bett as Morgenhall alongside East Enders actor and popular panto dame Nick Wilton as Fowle
In the style of the treasured Ealing style comedies and written by the acclaimed writer of Rumpole of the Bailey, The Dock Brief is a delightful comedy about the law, life and love!
Enjoy great company, a light lunch and a classic short play.
