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.
