The Verdict

Middle Ground Theatre Company Ltd presents

The Verdict By Barry Reed

Directed and designed by Michael Lunney 

Adapted by Margaret May Hobbs.

Starring Jason Merrells, Richard Walsh and Reanne Farley.

The powerful bestselling courtroom thriller that inspired a multi Academy Award-Nominated film starring Paul Newman.

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...

Jason Merrells is known to millions for his roles in Agatha Raisin, Emmerdale, Casualty, Waterloo Road and many more. He is joined by Richard Walsh (London's Burning), Reanne Farley (River City), Vincent Pirillo, Nigel Barber, Okon Jones, Michael Lunney, Sarah Shelton, Jason Wilson, Teresa Jennings, Holly Jackson Walters, James Morley, Bruce Chattan, Anna Arthur and Dave Speck.

This phenomenal and gripping courtroom thriller has been a huge success at theatres across the UK and Ireland.
