Beyond Reasonable Doubt
A DRAMA BY JEFFERY ARCHER
Perhaps you’ve read some of Jeffery Archer’s books, Honour Among Thieves, Shall We Tell the President? or one of his “Clifton Chronicles?” In 1987, he wrote his first play, Beyond Reasonable Doubt, a court drama and love story. Starring Frank Finlay and Wendy Craig, it ran at Queen’s Theatre in London’s West End for over 600 shows!
Act One opens with Old Bailey champion, Sir David Metcalfe, representing himself and on trial for the murder of his wife. It’s the toughest legal battle of his career, against wily rival, Anthony Blair-Booth, whose witness is Sir David’s own housekeeper: Mrs Rogers. Act Two take us back to the events leading up to the trial, where we see Sir David at home and meet the charming but terminally ill, Lady Millicent Metcalfe. Is Sir David guilty of murder? Will Mrs Rogers be the undoing of him and his illustrious legal career? How do you pronounce “Cyclotoxelix” anyway? The only way to find out is to come along and find out for yourself!
