Middle Ground Theatre Company Ltd is thrilled to announce the arrival of their highly acclaimed courtroom thriller, “The Verdict,” at the prestigious Alhambra Theatre. From Tuesday 27 June to Saturday 1 July 2023, audiences will be captivated by this powerful drama that has garnered widespread acclaim and inspired the multi-Academy Award-Nominated film starring Paul Newman.
“The Verdict” showcases a stellar cast including Jason Merrells, Richard Walsh, and Reanne Farley. Merrells, renowned for his roles in popular shows such as “Agatha Raisin,” “Emmerdale,” and “Casualty,” takes on the lead role of Frank Galvin, a washed-up veteran lawyer struggling with alcoholism. Galvin is handed a seemingly straightforward medical malpractice case that nobody believes he can win. In a bold move against the formidable medical establishment, Galvin rejects an out-of-court settlement, firmly believing that negligence is responsible for the tragic fate of a young mother. Detecting a potential cover-up, he courageously takes on the case, challenging the entire legal system in the process.
Joining Merrells on stage are the talented Richard Walsh, known for his work in “London’s Burning,” and Reanne Farley, recognised for her role in “River City.” The ensemble cast also features Vincent Pirillo, Nigel Barber, Okon Jones, Michael Lunney, Sarah Shelton, Jason Wilson, Teresa Jennings, Holly Jackson Walters, James Morley, Bruce Chattan, Anna Arthur, and Dave Speck.
“The Verdict” has garnered widespread acclaim and standing ovations at theatres across the UK and Ireland. Audiences have been enthralled by this gripping courtroom thriller that tackles weighty themes and showcases the indomitable spirit of its characters.
Jason Merrells has not only been wowing audiences on stage but has also been making waves on the small screen. Recently, he featured in the latest series of the hit BBC drama “Happy Valley” and was honoured with the title of Sky Arts’ Celebrity Portrait Artist of the Year in December.
Barry Reed’s compelling play “The Verdict” is expertly directed and designed by Michael Lunney, with the stage adaptation crafted by Margaret May Hobbs. The creative team has worked tirelessly to bring this enthralling story to life, ensuring audiences are gripped from start to finish.
