The Vacuous Case of Mister Um

Raymond Alexander Turco

Published by Cyberpress

7 Male 0 Female

A kangaroo court, in times unknown

His crime, his origin, and most details regarding his life are a mystery to even him, as the court attempts to wrestle with his "horrid", "vile", and "disgusting" offence

In the process, the prosecution seems to invent made-up scenarios, posit ridiculous hypotheses, and use the evasive power of suggestion to prove this man's guilt and the defense makes little effort to stop this charade

What follows is an even greater perversion of the law that ends in tragedy

This play won an honorable mention in the Blank Theatre's 2012 National Young Playwriting Competition
