Coliseum gets to consider The Verdict

Published: 21 February 2019

Middle Ground Theatre Company brings courtroom drama The Verdict to Oldham Coliseum Theatre.

Based on Barry Reed’s 1980 novel, which also inspired the five-time Oscar-nominated Sidney Lumet film of the same name starring Paul Newman and James Mason, The Verdict follows Frank Galvin, a washed-up veteran lawyer and alcoholic. He is presented with one last chance to redeem himself when he is given an open-and-shut medical malpractice case that no one thinks he can win.

The Verdict runs from March 12 to 16.
