Friends Ed and Tim take opposing briefs in a sexual assault case. The key witness is a woman whose life seems a world away from theirs. At home though the barristers’ own lives start to unravel in a frenzy of betrayals and recrimination.

Nina Raine’s funny, perceptive and gut-wrenching play sifts the evidence from every side and puts justice herself in the dock.

"Rich with humanity… a modern classic." The Times 

“This bracingly clever, bleakly funny play offers no easy answers to any of its questions: what is justice, what is vengeance, and which is right?”  The Guardian


Play readings are not just for prospective actors, but for anyone who would like to join in reading the play – or just listen to it being read.  The readings are informal social occasions when the bar is open - we enjoy meeting new people and welcoming them to our club.  There is no obligation to audition for the play or even to read – and there’s no need to book, just turn up!
