By Caryl Churchill
Published in volume Caryl Churchill: Shorts

A short play about justice and retribution, first seen as a BBC television drama.

When a Judge passes a harsh sentence on a young man, he sets in train a series of events that call into question his ultimate purpose: was he a reactionary, or a revolutionary?

Originally written for television, Caryl Churchill's The Judge's Wife was first broadcast on BBC 2 in October 1972.
