The Verdict at the Theatre Royal Winchester, March 2019
How much does the truth cost?
Middle Ground Theatre Company presents the second tour of the gripping and critically acclaimed courtroom sensation – The Verdict.

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 and the Catholic Church, he courageously refuses an out of court settlement, believing it is negligence that has condemned a young mother.
