The Dock Brief

Classical Drama

by John Mortimer 

Rapture Theatre return to our stages with their hugely successful lunchtime one-acts: Rapture Bites.

What happens when a bumbling murderer meets an even more ineffectual barrister?

Budgie fancier Herbert Fowle is on trial for killing his wife because she laughed too much. His only hope rests with Morgenhall, a court appointed barrister. However, Morgenhall has never won a case. Can he change his lifelong losing streak and free Mr Fowle?

In the style of the treasured Ealing comedies, The Dock Brief is a delightful play about the law, life and love!

We are offering complimentary sandwiches before the performance this Sunday to our audience attending The Dock Brief. If you would like to join us for a light bite before the show, please come along from 12:30 onwards.

Please note that The Dock Brief will be performed to a reduced capacity, for an audience preferring a more socially distanced performance experience.
