A great first performance of ‘The Trial of Millicent Malville’ last night at The Turner Centre! The audience were sworn in as jury and took their role very seriously, concentrating hard as the case unfolded, presented by defence and prosecution with a cast of witnesses.
Dr. Millicent Malville had been accused of murdering her husband – a very serious crime, but peppered with great comedic moments. When it came time to give their verdict, there was much debate amongst the audience/jury, who did not take their role lightly!
As for the verdict from last night, apparently it changes with each audience, so will remain secret so as not to sway the next deliberators!
Well done, Cast and Crew. Highly entertaining. And congratulations to David Crewe, who wrote and directed the play.
Please note that this afternoon’s performance is no longer scheduled as it clashed with the Waimate Show, but tickets are selling out for the remaining performances.
Tickets available from The Turner Centre, Kerikeri
