Sequel To A Verdict

Synopsis:
as the curtain rises it is long after the time of the trial and the Story Teller reconstructs the courtroom scene as he remembers it. We meet all the principal characters involved, and all make their contributions to the mosaic of the play's action. From the outset the State's attorney is convinced that the accused, Otto Grossmeir, is guilty, and is determined to convict him and demand the maximum penalty. He builds a tight, convincing case, but the defense shrewdly, calmly and logically endeavors to prove that it would have been impossible for Otto to have committed the crime. the play builds from one scene to the next, sustaining taut suspense and raising problems which reach out far beyond the context of the trial itself. the climax, when it comes, is both electrifying and challenging and certain to linger in the mind long after the final curtain has fallen
