Trial By Jury returns

AFTER the success of its initial launch earlier in the year, Lovehistory return with Trial By Jury with a brand new court-case next week.

The new instalment comes to Liverpool’s St George’s Hall on Wed 16 and Thu 17 August and then to the historic Grade II, National Heritage Listed County Sessions House, on Fri 18 August.

This theatre production puts the audience in the driving seat and gives them the power to decide the fate of those on trial.

The evening commences with audiences being witness to a grisly historical murder. The full details of the crime will then be revealed through performances, re-enactments and narrated by a very own Sherlock Holmes style detective who will piece together the full story and gather the evidence for the trial.

After all the harrowing details of the crime have been laid out, the prosecution and defence then present their arguments – it is then in the hands of the audience, who become the jury for the case; given the task of balancing all the evidence from both sides and deciding a verdict.

Will it be the Gallows? A lifetime of hard labour? Or will it be mercy? Only the audience will have the power to make that decision, with punishments and sentencing relative to the historical period of the crime.

Once the judge has passed sentence from the jury’s verdict, see how close the outcome was to the real-life sentence which will then also be revealed.

Judy McLean Creative Director of Lovehistory said: “The first Trial By Jury was a huge success, and this one is proving very popular and tickets are selling fast! It really engages with the audience and they become a part of the show; what is so great and unique about this event, is that no 2 shows will ever be the same as the audience will always be different.

“We have an absolute cracker of a case for this Trial which will be kept a secret until we open – again it is based on an actual historical Liverpool court case and it is guaranteed to be a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening!”
