Due to phenomenal demand and the two Saturday showings of Douglas Skelton’s YOU THE JURY play selling out, we’re delighted to add a third showing on Sunday at 2pm.

A woman is found dead in her flat, a rope around her neck. Was it suicide – as her husband suggests – or murder? What’s it really like in a Scottish murder trial? Do lawyers cry out “Objection”? Does the judge strike a gavel to maintain order? Are there dramatic witness box confessions?

Find out in this reconstruction in a real court room, based on an actual case, with real-life lawyers, court staff and scientists playing their own parts.

And YOU could be on the jury!

The play is sponsored by the Faculty of Advocates and Gordon Jackson, QC, Dean of the Faculty of Advocates, said: “The Faculty of Advocates is proud to sponsor the opening gala at Bloody Scotland again this year, as well as collaborating with the forensic science and crime writing communities on a courtroom dramatisation. You The Jury will be both authentic and entertaining, and will give the audience a real insight into what goes on in a Scottish murder trial.”

Tickets for the Sunday showing are available now: https://bloodyscotlstg.wpenginepowered.com/event/you-the-jury-a-play-by-douglas-skelton/
