Lively, intelligent, legal cliff-hanger comes to BRIDGE HOUSE THEATRE, WARWICK for one night only.
Take two competent professional women, add secrets, suspense, high stakes and a little spice. Combine in a courtroom drama and you have the recipe for Edinburgh Fringe 5* writer and performer, Ginny Davis’s award-winning play “Learned Friends”.
Davis performs alongside former West End actress Sharon Baylis (The Mousetrap, Amadeus, The Bill, Emmerdale) in this “warm, witty and suspenseful work” (www.eyesoretheatre.com). Adapted for theatre from the multi-handed production which has sold out to audiences at the Central Criminal Court, London and in Birmingham, this is a drama with a difference.
As with all court proceedings the verdict is not known until it is delivered in real time. Not even the cast know how the production will end when it begins. The play focusses on two barristers; prosecution and defence counsel as they await the verdict in the trial of a high profile football manager. Each holds a secret which, when exposed, will challenge friendships, careers and the true course of justice.
“Learned Friends” won Best Original Piece at Birminghamfest 2016
“Brilliantly acted, superbly devised and amazingly well written.” Alastair Hodge Master of the Bench, Inner Temple
