STC’s popular Mock Trial series makes an epic in-person comeback for the 2022 season! Our esteemed bench will be presided over by Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer, and our extraordinary advocates will be Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff and D.C. litigator Debra Katz. The argument will be A Hero Defamed? Much Ado About Margaret. Plus, join STC Bard Association Chair Abbe Lowell and STC Artistic Director Simon Godwin for a riveting conversation during the judges’ deliberation.

Don’t miss some of the nation’s most experienced judges and lawyers going head-to-head on stage on Monday, April 11, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. at Sidney Harman Hall.

For the first time ever the Mock Trial will also be livestreamed. Join the live chat from home and, after hearing the arguments, you’ll serve as the jury in a live vote to determine the outcome of the case!
