    Paul : prosecution
    Dominic: defense
    Anne :clerk
    Huw :witness (he looks very confused!)
    Austin, Helen Richard, Alex, Lucinda :jury

    James swears in the jury on Winnie the Pooh. Richard sits on the Good Book.

    Paul: Well, Your Honour, M'lord. The charge is that Dominic White did not attend the WTP soc meetings for two consecutive weeks and both times did not send apologies.

    Dominic: Pleads not guilty

    James dons the gown and green cap and Dominics helmet to pronounce sentence.

    Paul calls Huw as the first witness.

    Paul accused of leading the witness. "What behaviour has Huw noticed??"

    Huw: Dominic left them to go and meet a girl in the organ loft

    James refuses to listen to the defence.

    Dominic says that James is insane and legal!
    Dominic asks the identity of the "lady" that Huw refers to
    Dominic thinks that the lady in question might be Alex.

    Dominic : Winnie the Pooh intended to give Eeyore a pot of honey. Pooh ate the honey before giving it to Eeyore. On last Saturday, the day after his 21st Birthday, being partially overcome by alcohol ("by who??" asks Huw), he forgot to give notice that he would be absent.
    Dominic also raised 67.35 for the Chapel Choir trip to Rome, and he gave us the pleasure of this trial, so he should be forgiven!

    Jury leaves the room to decide verdict

    Dominic tries to corrupt the jury - he says he will buy Alex and Lucinda drinks that evening.

    Jury returns - Richard as foreman says that their decision is that the case is not proven. Jury refuses to find the defendant guilty.

    Dominic changes his plea to being guilty of missing the meetings.

    Dominic has to compose a song to sing at the Garden Party.

    Paul proposes that we close last week's meeting.
