The Verdict

Large Mixed Cast

Margaret May Hobbs from Barry Reed Price: $15.95

Based on the novel by Barry Reed, The Verdict was filmed by Sidney Lumet starring Paul Newman, James Mason and Charlotte Rampling

Frank Galvin is a washed-up veteran lawyer and an alcoholic, now reduced to ambulance-chasing cases

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 Boston medical establishment, he courageously refuses an out-of-court settlement, believing it is negligence that has condemned a young mother to life in a coma and not simply an unfortunate accident

Smelling a cover-up, he instead takes the case and the entire legal system to court

Margaret May Hobbs’ stage adaptation of the courtroom thriller was premiered by Middle Ground Theatre Company in 2017
