Clive Mantle and Jack Shepherd To Star In The Verdict

The world stage premiere of the powerful courtroom thriller The Verdict, starring Clive Mantle and Jack Shepherd comes to Cardiff’s New Theatre in February.

Clive Mantle stars as Frank Galvin a washed up veteran lawyer and an alcoholic. He is presented with one last chance to redeem himself when he is given an open-and-shut medical malpractice case that no one thinks he can win. Up against the unforgiving medical establishment and the all-powerful Catholic Church, he courageously refuses an out of court settlement and instead takes the case and the entire legal system to court.

Clive Mantle and Jack Shepherd lead a cast of fourteen in the first theatrical production of the story made famous by the five times Oscar nominated Sidney Lumet film with Paul Newman, Charlotte Rampling and James Mason. The Verdict runs from February 7 -11.
