It’s a Trial! is a unique performance fusing courtroom drama with community theatre. The case: the Government is being sued for negligence over New Zealand's current housing crisis. Joel Baxendale and Karin McCracken feature as opposing lawyers and call on real expert witnesses to help win the case, all under the watchful eye of maverick Judge Jody (Jo Randerson) and her court taker (Maria Williams).

It’s a Trial! is a theatrical forum to discuss social issues. Staged like a genuine trial and loosely following real court procedures the show stages a serious debate through absurdly funny characters. As part of the performance, audience members are invited to act as the members of the jury, sketch artists in the press box, or simply watch from the public gallery. Stay for the whole afternoon, or come and go as you please.

Presented by Binge Culture Collective and Barbarian Production, as part of the Spring Uprising Festival 2017.
