Night of January 16th by Ayn Rand
This vintage courtroom classic has it all - lawyers, gangsters, maids, private eyes, dancers, millionaires, cops, expert witnesses and, of course, two women who loved the same dead man. In addition, twelve members of the audience are selected to be the jury. The question that stands before them is whether international financier Bjorn Faulkner jumped to his death or if he was pushed. Karen Andre, his efficient secretary, stands on trial for his murder. Wickman has taken the play out of the traditional courtroom setting and placed it atop a rooftop overlooking the 1930's New York skyline - bringing the audience to the scene of the crime. As witness after witness takes the stand, the facts begin to mount - or do they?
