Lovehistory Sentences Audiences To A Gripping Evening Of Historic Courtroom Drama in TRIAL BY JURY

Lovehistory Sentences Audiences To A Gripping Evening Of Historic Courtroom Drama in TRIAL BY JURY Following the sell-out success of the March dates, Lovehistory's Trial By Jury event is back at Liverpool St George's Hall Court Rooms for 3 days next month, with a gripping brand new case to solve.

From Wednesday 15 March - Friday 17th August 2018, a compelling immersive theatre production in original historic courts will put the audience in the driving seat and give them the power to decide the fate of those on trial. Guilty or not guilty? You decide!

The show was first introduced in April last year, and following its success, returned in August and again in March with new cases, to great success.

The exciting courtroom drama is brought to life by history specialist theatre company Lovehistory - the creative minds behind The Catacombs of Liverpool's Darkest History Tours and Murder at St George's Hall Series.

Set in the original courts of St George's Hall, where many infamous Liverpool cases were once tried, this is a perfect evening for any amateur sleuth. Put those detective skills to the test as details of a real-life historical court case are revealed.

The evening commences with audiences being witness to a grisly historical murder. The full details of the crime will then be revealed through compelling performances, re-enactments and narrated by a very own Sherlock Holmes style detective who will piece together the full story and gather the evidence for the trial.

After all the harrowing details of the crime have been laid out, the prosecution and defence then present their arguments - it is then in the hands of the audience, who become the jury for the case; given the task of balancing all the evidence from both sides and deciding a verdict. The fate of the accused will be in their hands as they await nervously in the dock for the outcome.

Will it be the Gallows? A lifetime of hard labour? Or will it be mercy? Only the audience will have the power to make that decision, with punishments and sentencing relative to the historical period of the crime.

The crime and court-case planned for the upcoming event will be kept top secret until the evening of the first performance.

Judy McLean Creative Director of Lovehistory said: "Trial By Jury is a really fun and interactive evening's entertainment whilst also offering audiences a chance to experience the types of cases that were tried at St Georges Hall throughout history, and not only that - put them in the driving seat, being the Jury and decide the outcome of the show!

The jury will certainly have their work cut out for them, it is a real cracker of a case that we have selected. We have had such positive feedback from audiences at the last event and it seems the Liverpool public love playing detective."
