There cannot be a more fitting venue for Gilbert & Sullivan's Trial by Jury, than the historic, site-specific Oak Court Room within Salisbury's Guildhall!
This performance invites you, the audience, to be the chorus as you are put through your paces in a rehearsal before a raucous performance in the second half!
Bride-to-be Angelina has been jilted by her dastardly fiancée Edwin. She decides to sue him for breach of promise of marriage. The judge and indeed all the members of the jury fall for Angelina’s charms, so will she finally manage to walk down the aisle? Gilbert’s wit is brilliant and Sullivan’s music at its best, so no wonder Trial by Jury has been referred to as 'probably the most successful British one-act operetta of all time'.
Don't miss this remarkable performance experience of a beloved British work, with a seasoned cast in an unrivalled location!
