5:30 PM Performance Begins

DEFAMATION is an old-fashioned courtroom drama. The premise is a civil suit: A South Side African-American woman sues a Jewish North Shore real estate developer for defamation. The legal issue is whether or not she was falsely accused of stealing his watch and causing her financial harm.  DEFAMATION explores the highly charged issues of race, religion, gender, class and the law with a twist: our law school audience is the jury. Through deliberations and post-show discussions, audiences engage in civil discourse that challenges pre-conceived notions. After the trial, the audience engages in a 15-minute deliberation led by the judge. The judge polls the audience twice - before the deliberation begins and at its end. The final vote ‘for the plaintiff’ or ‘for the defendant’ decides the outcome of the trial.
