Orlando Shakespeare Theater's Bard's Board Barristers are to present their 4th annual mock trial, February 21 at 5:30pm at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center.

Based on Orlando Shakespeare Theater's production of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, this event will explore whether Friar Laurence is legally culpable for the untimely deaths of Juliet and Romeo. A panel of five special guest judges will consider the verdict, and actors from Orlando Shakespeare Theater's upcoming production of Romeo and Juliet will participate in this event.

Since 2009, the Bard's Board Barristers has hosted mock trials using classic plays as templates to explore contemporary legal thought.
