Rapture Theatre is back with Rapture Bites – the hugely successful series of one-act plays at lunchtime: The Dock Brief by John Mortimer.

The Dock Brief by John Mortimer.

What happens when a bumbling murderer meets an even more ineffectual barrister? Budgie fancier Herbert Fowle is on trial for killing his wife because she laughed too much. His only hope rests with Morgenhall, a court appointed barrister. However, Morgenhall has never won a case. Can he change his lifelong losing streak and free Mr Fowle?

In the style of the treasured Ealing comedies, The Dock Brief is a delightful play about the law, life and love.
