It's A Trial

  • Museum of Wellington (map)

From the people who brought you A TRIAL comes another trial, different from the first trial but still IT'S A TRIAL!

IT'S A TRIAL! is a unique one-off performance that fuses courtroom drama with community theatre. 

PRESENTED BY Binge Culture Collective and Barbarian Productions.

Lawyers Joel Bakensdale and Karin Rizmakon call on members of the public to be expert witnesses to help win the case, in which The Government is being sued for negligence over the housing crisis. The lawyers will have to navigate a legal quagmire to argue whether a duty of care is owed, and whether that has been breached. 

This is under the unreliable eye of maverick 'strange' (Theatreview) Judge Jody Ranzerson and her court taker, the 'odd' (Theatreview) Courtney T Aker. Busy Journalist Jacqui Strongarm will hopefully make an appearance, depending on how well her Masters of Journalism is going. 

Audience members are invited to act as the members of the jury, sketch artists in the press box, or simply members of the public gallery. 

WHO: Joel Baxendale, Karin McCracken, Anya Tate-Manning, Jo Randerson and Maria Williams
WHERE: Von Kohorn Boardroom in Wellington Museum
PRICE: $10, $20 or $30 for the full trial session.
