This 25 minutes play will be presented in the form of a trial and takes place in Aylmer in the year of 1870 while a young farm worker is accused of having stolen a horse at the British Hotel. After listening to all the witnesses and the arguments of the lawyers, the jury, composed of twelve representatives selected from the audience, will pronounce their verdict to either free up the accused or to send him back to jail. Composed of a cast of seven actors, this humoristic play is recreating the ambiance of the Aylmer Court more than one hundred years ago.
