The Verdict on in Gaiety Theatre
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.
