Terence Frisby's play is perhaps even more relevant today than it was when, 20 years ago, he launched this attack on the injustices of the British legal system. The threat to abolish Jury trial, (too slow, too expensive, too complicated for simple minded jurors), Rough Justice holds hard to this, the only fluid portion, of a system it attacked. The central plot of a mercy killing, is more openly debated today than when first written. Yet as the programme notes show, these elements are as old as the time itself. Tom Conti demonstrates his international star qualities, supported by a top drawer cast of "Wasn't she/he in...?". With a fast moving, witty, laugh-out-loud, tear-wiping script, this play inspires and entertains. Even the audience has a chance to have its say. The best theatrical night out available.
