Scales of Injustice
by Jim Murchison
It is more a commentary on the need for vigilant examination of authority and power than a diatribe against any group or person in particular.
The cast is consistently strong. The play primarily focuses on Sarah's conflict at coming to grips with how this horrible thing could happen in her little town. Played by Jenny Young, she grows from fourteen year old to a woman with a son of her own. She very effectively gives us a perspective on the struggle that a community and a nation had coming to terms with the possibility of how a great miscarriage of justice could possibly occur here.
Innocence Lost runs until March 16
