This is how the famous storyteller herself described Verdict: "It satisfied me completely. I still think it is the best play I have written, with the exception of Witness for the Prosecution." For your interest, here is the synopsis:
Karl Hendryk is a brilliant professor who, with his wife and her cousin, has fled persecution in his homeland and finds himself ensconced in England. The play concerns itself with the relationships the professor has with the women in his life. His wife, Anya, who is suffering from a progressively debilitating disease, her cousin and carer, Lisa, and Helen Rollander, a spoiled student who takes up private lessons with the professor.
