Andrei Vukhov, a Russian Army Captain, stands alone before his judges. He tells of his ordeal of survival by cannibalism during a period of 60 days' incarceration in the cellar of a deserted monastery in Southern Poland during the Second World War

Vukhov is a fiction; so, broadly, is the story he tells. Certain details, however, are factual, based on a brief description of the incident given by George Steiner in his book The Death of Tragedy

"There are some plays that demand almost as much of the audience as of their actors. Judgement is one of these. The sheer intensity of Barry Collins' monologue about cannibalism and the human spirit tears and drains... an unforgettable play" ~ Nigel Jones, The Independent

"...an extraordinary, stark and compelling play" ~ Jack Tinker, Daily Mail

" Barry Collins' measured, eloquent writing ... you'll be moved and disturbed, but palatably so" ~ Andy Lavender, City Limits

"It is a red-raw theatrical experience of rare depth and power" ~ Toby Harnden, The Scotsman

"...a stupendous achievement" ~ Graham Jones, The Guardian
