Did Dr Sherwood murder his wife? Was Jennifer Mitchell his mistress? Which of his alibis should you believe? The choice will keep you on the edge of your seats, and at the end of the trial you will be invited to deliver your verdict of guilty or not guilty. Once you have made that decision, the play will continue - with one of two different endings, depending on your verdict. Only then will you finally discover the truth.
