I am finding this play very powerful and have listened to the evening repeat too. I have been drawn into this one.  'Powerful' is a word that can be used too easily to describe a play, but due to the calibre of the performances and the handling of the subject matter here, it is very appropriate.

A court room is an interesting setting to portray a story and it can be an ideal place to get to the root of people's feelings. The acting all round is superb.

Well, I think this kind of went perhaps a little flat for the final episode, but that said it was a quality piece of work. Over the months there has been quite a variety of subjects in these 15 minute dramas. I'm enjoying most of them.
