The Test Case
An American woman of Indian descent tries to pass the admission test to get into a very exclusive institution.  It could be one of many, but this one happens to have pearly gates.  She comes to believe that the entry requirements show implicit bias.  Thurgood Marshall takes up her case.  With Socrates as opposing counsel, they take their argument before the judge, Mahatma Gandhi.  The trial raises provocative arguments, and resolution is finally found through the appearance of a surprise guest.

This new play, written by a Seattle lawyer and performed by lawyers, will be presented in the Mock Trial Courtroom of the University of Washington School of Law, and is designed to provoke a lively discussion afterwards amongst performers and audience.  Six audience members at each performance will be able to book premium seats - in the jury box - and they will be invited to be first to start the conversation.

The staged reading is directed by Arne Zaslove, noted theater director, under the auspices of his Hit and Run Theater Company.  It has been said that courtroom lawyers are actors at heart, and this show gives ample opportunity for them to prove it.  Seattle civil rights pioneer Lem Howell will take the role of Thurgood Marshall, while appellate lawyer Mike King plays Socrates and Venkat Balasubramani (of Focal PLLC) portrays Gandhi.  The cast also features Susan Roe, of the U.S. Attorney's office, and arts and culture professionals Jennifer Lobsenz (of Path with Art) and Edward Wolcher (of Town Hall).

This not-to-be-missed event offers not only a vibrant evening of courtroom drama, but also an important community conversation - for two nights only.
