Set in Skipton in 1810 this funny, earthy and satirical play concerns Judge Adam who is far from happy to be visited by the investigating magistrate seeking out signs of malpractice.

The trial he oversees seems uncomplicated at first: the formidable Martha is suing her daughter's fiancé for breaking her jug. However the plot thickens as family grievances are unearthed, and discovering the identity of a mysterious man seen with the daughter, become crucial to the case.
