EASINGWOLD PLAYERS PRESENTS: FRI 11 & SAT 12 SEP, 7.30PM: THE DOCK BRIEF
By John Mortimer
After 40 years of undistinguished practice Wilfred Morgenhall, a cynical and unsuccessful barrister, is overjoyed to be assigned a dock brief: the defence of an accused murderer. His client, Herbert Fowle, is a meek man who wants to plead guilty to murdering his wife. Through a series of courtroom scenes and flashbacks the details of the crime unfolds. But the case does not go according to plan…The play features Jonathan Lewis as the barrister Morgenhall and James Potter as the accused; Herbert Fowle. The play is directed by David (Dominic) Goodwin.
