What happens when an unsuccessful murderer meets an even more unsuccessful barrister?
Budgie fancier Herbert Fowle has murdered his wife because she laughed too much, and he is now on trial. His only hope rests with Morgenhall, his court appointed barrister. However, Morgenhall has never won a case. Can Morgenhall change his lifelong losing streak and free Mr Fowle?
In the style of treasured Ealing comedies and written by John Mortimer, The Dock Brief is a delightful play about the law, life and love.
