About the show:

(Set in the mid-1930s) Bjorn Faulkner has swindled millions of dollars from investors, investing cash he did not have in order to control the gold trade.  In the wake of a crash, he is facing bankruptcy despite borrowing money from Mr. John Graham Whitfield, a prominent banker whose daughter, Nancy Lee, married Faulkner shortly after the loan.  On the night of January 16th, Faulkner and Karen Andre, his secretary and lover, are in the penthouse at the top of the Faulkner Building in New York when Faulkner falls to his death.  Shortly thereafter Karen Andre is accused of murdering him and is put on trial.  But did she kill him?  Did he commit suicide rather than face his financial troubles?  Or did someone else have a motive for ending his life?  Only YOU, the jury selected from our audience, can decide the fate of Karen Andre!  Come witness (and maybe be a part of) the trial, shift through the evidence, and render a verdict – is Karen Andre guilty or not guilty?
