An original Out of Joint and National Theatre co-production, presented by National Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions



Our co-production with the National Theatre of 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. 14,000 tickets at £25 or under will be available for the run. Claudie Blakley and Stephen Campbell Moore join original cast members Heather Craney and Adam James. Full cast here.

“A tense, entertaining, modern-day tragi-comedy”
Daily Telegraph

“Unreservedly recommended.”
The Independent more reviews

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.
