The Bird Table

by Jonathan Davies

One lapse of judgement and a successful barrister finds herself on the other side of the courtroom, in the witness box fighting for justice. This is a tense courtroom drama, which focuses on how the central character deals with the opposite side of the justice system, whilst having complex relationships with those around her - her husband, her children and the defendant's barrister.


''This isn't a game, Jeremy.'
'That's exactly what I mean. It isn't a game, but when you cross-examine you make it just that. Running ideas together, for instance. Just because a question is capable of being asked that doesn't mean it's capable of a serious answer.'
