Middle Ground Theatre Company presents
The powerful best-selling courtroom thriller that inspired a multi Academy Award-Nominated film.
By BARRY REED
Adapted by MARGARET MAY HOBBS
Designed and Directed by MICHAEL LUNNEY
STARRING CLIVE MANTLE, JACK SHEPHERD and RICHARD WALSH
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.
This stunning courtroom thriller was made famous by the five times Academy Award-nominated Sidney Lumet film starring 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 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. He is probably best known for his portrayal of DS 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, Jog Maher, Marcus Knibbs and Hannah Timms.
