DescriptionHapless anxiety prone lawyer Brad Pitt ( no relation ) turns up to fill in for the day for a lawyer on holiday and is thrust unprepared into a complex court hearing.
In the case a Bondi mother is suing a chemical giant because her daughter's show pony was ravaged by the company's cleaning product.
Facing a lawyer who resembles a rottweiler and a scowling magistrate, Brad Pitt has to overcome the odds including a strange habit of passing out and waking up thinking he is a gorilla. Can he win the case on his own, or will some hypnosis get him over the line?
This tenth anniversary production of Bondi Legal is fresh from a sell out tour of Tasmania. At the premiere it was described by Stage Whispers Magazine as "a funny and touching play."
The comedy is based on an actual court case the playwright Tony Laumberg took on when he was a young solicitor
