SHEEP FOR A LAMB by David Weir


Michael’s in jail for life for killing his wife and two kids. But there were no bodies, no forensic evidence and a jury that took days before reaching a 10-2 majority verdict.  Catherine’s a newish lawyer who senses a miscarriage of justice and a chance to make a name for herself if she can persuade him to let her take up his case and clear his name.  But did he do it? And is her interest more personal than professional?



Michael, a prisoner, late 30s or older

Catherine, a lawyer, mid 30s or older

(non-speaking) a prison officer, either sex, any age
