Heres your chance to
be judge and jury (but not executioner!). Or you can be Ludovic
Dementia, killed in the first scene by his fellow patient, the
mad (or bad?) Danny Psycho McNaughten.
In this play, which starts with a homicide in
a psychiatric hospital and ends in the Crown Court, all participants
have the chance to play a part.
Mr Justice Alzheimer - are his fibrils as tangled
as his name suggests?
Flo Nightingale - will she crack under cross-examination?
Dr Sigmund Freud - how not to give evidence!
W.P.C. Cagney - bringing gender equality to a rural constabulary.
Daniel McNaughten - will he comply with his own rules?
...and many more of the great and the good
encountered by Daniel McNaughten in his progress through the
criminal justice system.
The workshop is intended for general psychiatrists
unfamiliar with the criminal justice system. Although there
is a role for everyone and some participants can play more than
one role, the play is fully scripted. Between each scene there
is opportunity to discuss what can be learnt from the previous
scene. The workshop is for 15 - 25 participants. Participants
will receive papers on The Criminal Justice System in
England and Wales and The Law of Evidence
and a reading list.
Come along, dress up in uniforms and outrageous
costumes and act out like policemen, judges
and barristers do every day.
