Originally commissioned by Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey, this courtroom farce premiered in an actual county courthouse. A gullible young woman has been bamboozled by a shifty attorney into pressing a suit for restitution against the National Weather Service. The claim? She has been disabled by an unpredicted weather phenomenon: a bathroom tornado. In a pretrial meeting, wacky witnesses chip away at the injured party's promised windfall.

Published in Here, There, and Everywhere.

JURIS PRUDENCE was originally commissioned by Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and performed in the jury selection room of the Morris County Courthouse on December 31, 1997 as part of Morristown, New Jersey's First Night Celebration. The play was directed by John Pietrowski.
