This Is Your Trial: Family Court

  • Sat 09 Jul - Tue 12 Jul

The UK's only court-room based improvised comedy is coming to Kingston!
This is the critically acclaimed show where top comedians are lawyers, prosecuting and defending charges set against YOU.

Judge Howard Read presides with a team of guests.

Audience members make up the jury.

We are putting on two special court days for a family court and one evening show for adults.

The show can be an introduction to the legal process for children (and most adults!) in a fun and safe way.
It is educational and hilarious.

Kids discover that there can be two sides to an argument!

Parents facing charges brought by their kids. 

Brothers put in the dock by their sister. 


Court will be open for 3x special hearings. The first two sessions are a 'family court'. The final show is just for adults. 

It's justice with laughs.


Judge Judy meets Whose Line is it Anyway. A critically acclaimed event that stormed the Edinburgh Fringe.
