We are extremely happy with the responses and reactions from our audiences.”

 

The casting included Sebastian Arcelus as Jake Brigance; Jeffrey M. Bender as Deputy Looney; Dashiell Eaves as Pete Willard/DR Musgrove; J.R.

Synopsis: A Time to Kill, the popular courtroom drama, tells the emotionally charged, now-iconic story of a young, idealistic lawyer, Jake Brigance, defending a black man, Carl Lee Hailey, for taking the law into his own hands following an unspeakable crime committed against his young daughter.  Their small Mississippi town is thrown into upheaval, and Jake finds himself arguing against the formidable district attorney, Rufus Buckley, and under attack from both sides of a racially divided city.  This drama is a thrilling courtroom battle where the true nature of what is right and what is moral are called into question.
