A television commentator who hosts a widely-watched programme called “BRITISH JUSTICE?” is on the stand at the Old Bailey for the murder of his severely handicapped child. He refuses his solicitor’s plea to obtain legal representation, and conducts his own defence, admitting responsibility but pleading manslaughter.
This is an emotional and intense play leaving the audience debating as they leave the theatre. That is my intention.
