Enthralling local courtroom drama comes to the Midlands
May 22 @ 7:00 pm - May 25 @ 9:30 pmR40 – R130
Fans of legal dramas and local theatre will not want to miss Justice is a Woman; a highly emotive theatre production highlighting issues of gender inequality and the ethical dilemmas of the justice system written by well-respected former KZN judge Chris Nicholson, directed by Paul Spence, formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company UK and starring a richly talented South African cast.
Set in a KZN university in 2018, after the 2 000-year exclusion of women as lawyers in the courtroom, Justice is a Woman tells the captivating story of a female post-graduate student’s molestation case against her male university professor. Lead character Portia, the lawyer representing the professor, is faced with an ethical dilemma that forces her to question her values and threatens to tear her personal life apart.
Opening performances take place from 22 to 25 May at Michaelhouse, 29 and 30 May at Grace College, and from 4 to 8 June at the Hexagon Theatre, Pietermaritzburg.
Tickets are R70 per person, pensioners R50 and students R40 at Michaelhouse and Grace College, and R130 per person, pensioners R65 and students R40. For more information, follow @justiceisawoman on Facebook or contact Paul Spence on firstname.lastname@example.org or (084) 341 1742.
