Legal Fictions

A pair of one-act plays. In “The Dock Brief“, an incompetent barrister prepares a masterly defence for a murderer; and in “Edwin“, a retired judge suspects that his son may in fact be the product of a one-night stand between his wife and his neighbour.

Two one-act plays written for presentation under John Mortimer’s own collective title Legal Fictions.
