LA Times “Brief” director Robert Bailey keeps the action keenly paced…with Collison as a lean, lugulrious counterpart to Mann’s hapless schlub…[who is] particulary effective with his droopy dog appearance and sly twinkle.” Kathleen Foley — Los Angeles Times
Will Call. “Under the spirited direction of Robert Bailey, the two actors are superb and their performance alone merits your attendance.”
LA Splash. “Witty and clever. Extraordinary actors…their faces tell a thousand tales. Small but meaningful details confirm Mortimer’s mastery at crafting good theater” – LA Splash
LA Culture. Comedy is, to my mind, the only thing worth writing in this despairing age, providing it is comedy which is truly on the side of the lonely, the neglected and the unsuccessful.” So says Sir John Mortimer, the British-born playwright and author of The Dock Brief.

“A perfect jewel of a play” – British Sunday Times.
In THE DOCK BRIEF, an unsuccessful barrister has been waiting for years to make a grandstand defense. He is overjoyed when he is assigned to defend an innocuous little man accused of murdering his wife. “Comedy is, to my mind, the only thing worth writing in this despairing age, providing it is comedy which is truly on the side of the lonely, the neglected and unsuccessful.” John Mortimer
