Murder in the Citizens’ Jury

A 25 minute dramatic monologue with Q&A

Murder in the Citizens’ Jury

What’s on offer?

A 25 minute dramatic monologue by star of stage and screen Jack Klaff (Star Wars & others) followed by Q&A.

What’s it about?

Murder in the Citizens' Jury is a dramatic monologue set in a citizens' jury where eight people debate climate solutions. A murder threatens the status of citizens' juries themselves. It is a drama exploring the ethical crisis of the Director of Public Prosecutions who has to decide whether to prosecute a murder. If he does so, he will alienate his family, and it will mean the end for citizens’ assemblies – a form of direct democracy which many believe could be the silver bullet to avert a climate crisis. The audience are invited to help the DPP make the decision via a voting app and slips on their free programme which provides more information.

Who’s leading the event?

Denise Baden, Professor of Sustainable Practice at the University of Southampton
