When an eighty-five-year-old former man of the church and his housekeeper are brutally murdered in 1870 the relatively new Detective Branch from Scotland Yard are tasked with the investigation. In a case that has twists and turns resulting in the arrest of an unlikely suspect who has gone to great lengths to disguise his actions, the trial takes place at the Old Bailey. In a detailed re-construction of the circumstances leading to this horrible crime the audience will be invited to sit as the jury. If you find him innocent a possible murderer will walk free from the court, if you find him guilty he will hang.

A quite extraordinary story that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.
