Antelope Valley Thespians presents: BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, by Nathan Mayer. Starring: Courtney Marietta, Derric Neal, and Joe Gruca.

Two dynamic lawyers are locked in a clash of wills and morality. Ruth Ballard is an embittered radical, now in jail, accused of participating in a bank robbery and a subsequent killing. She chooses to represent herself as attorney.

 Kenneth Hayes is the assistant district attorney assigned to prosecute her. Once, they were classmates, and more, in law school—now they are two lawyers with very different views on the nature of justice. Their conflicts, legal and personal, probe the nature of our criminal justice system and the dichotomy between logic and compassion.
