Event description


Saturday 29 April 2017

PERFORMANCE TIMES 1400, 1700 and 2000 hrs



By popular demand "Learned Friends", a compelling, high stakes legal drama, returns to the Central Criminal Court in a promenade performance which moves between lower hall and historic Court One, the location of some of this country's most notorious criminal trials.

Counsel await the verdict in a high profile criminal trial. Prosecution counsel is bored, defence counsel preoccupied. Each holds a secret. Irreconcilable conflicts emerge as irregularities in the trial are exposed. Loyalty is pitted against professional duty. Who wins? Who do you think?

Ginny Davis Productions presents a brand new version with two possible endings. During the play a random sample of the audience will choose which ending they wish to see. None of the performers knows their choice at the start of the play.


Judith Taylor (Prosecution counsel) - Ginny Davis

Mandy Armstrong (Defence counsel) - Sharon Baylis

His Honour Judge Charles Savage - Mr Justice William Davis

Supporting roles played by members of the company.
