Classic lunchtime theatre is back!

Following the huge success of Rapture Bites 2019, we return to the stage with Rapture Bites 2021.

What happens when a bumbling murderer meets an even more ineffectual barrister?

Budgie fancier Herbert Fowle is on trial for killing his wife because she laughed too much. His only hope rests with Morgenhall, a court appointed barrister.

However, Morgenhall has never won a case. Can he change his lifelong losing streak and free Mr Fowle?

In the style of the treasured Ealing comedies, The Dock Brief is a delightful play about the law, life and love!
