But instead of the more formal surroundings of a courtroom, the trial is set to take place in front of a packed audience, all in the name of entertainment.
It is all part of the annual Rough Diamonds Evenings at the Dylan Thomas Centre on Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 May.
Jo Furber, Literature Officer at the Dylan Thomas Centre said “It’s an unique opportunity to see extracts of drama from talented young writers studying at Swansea University.”
“As well as the UK going on trial, the plays include many themes including war correspondents in Gaza, petty criminals in Swansea and a Papal crisis of confidence that brings heaven and Earth together in a spectacular showdown”.
The evenings, comprising of specially selected extracts from the plays, will be introduced and directed by playwright D.J.Britton, Lecturer in Dramatic Writing at Swansea University.
The works will be performed by Swansea’s outstanding Fluellen Theatre Company.
All tickets are £3. Please contact the Dylan Thomas Centre on 01792 463980 for more information, or see http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/
