The Justice Syndicate

A top surgeon accused of a serious crime. Conviction would mean planned operations will not go ahead – and the evidence is far from conclusive.

The Justice Syndicate is a piece of playable theatre drawing on a jury format. It asks how we fill in the gaps, how we deal with our preconceptions, and how being part of a group can affect all this.

Power and privilege; trust and technology; thought and action.

How will you vote?

If you’re a fan of The Good Wife, Law and Order or Ally McBeal; if you’ve always wanted to make that 11th hour intervention where you change everyone’s minds; or if you’re just quite interested in what makes people tick, this performance is for you.

The Justice Syndicate is a collaboration with neuroscientist Dr Kris De Meyer and computational artist Joe McAlister. The Justice Syndicate is supported by Near Now, King’s Cultural Institute and London South Bank University.

Trigger warning: The Justice Syndicate contains both discussion of sexual assault and explicit description of consensual sexual activity.
