Nina Raine's 'blistering new play' (New York Times), directed by Roger Michell, makes a triumphant and timely transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre this May, following a sold out season at the National Theatre.

Synopsis


Why is Justice blind?


Is she impartial?


Or is she blinkered?


Friends take opposing briefs in a contentious legal case.


The key witness is a woman whose life seems a world away from theirs.


At home, their own lives begin to unravel as every version of the truth is challenged.


This 'tense, entertaining modern-day tragi-comedy' (Daily Telegraph) takes a searing look at the law whilst putting modern relationships into the dock.
