Obiter loves a play so to hear news that Gwyneth Paltrow’s civil trial earlier this year will has been adapted for the stage was music to this theatre-goer’s ears.

You may remember the US trial which snatched headlines across the world, after the Hollywood actress was sued by a retired optometrist who alleged she recklessly crashed into him at a ski resort. 

He lost. She was awarded $1 of damages.

So, just when Obiter thought it was curtains for Paltrow’s trial, (Robert de Niro was occupying Obiter’s celebrity court brain space for a short time) The Pleasance & Awkward Productions has decreed it not so.

Enter: Gwyneth Goes Skiing at the Pleasance theatre, in north London.

A 90-minute comedy Christmas show featuring original music, but not a musical it is important to note, that sells itself as ‘a story of love, betrayal, skiing, and (somehow) Christmas – where you are the jury!’

The past few months have given us plenty of court-based entertainment. A ‘Wagatha’ Christie documentary, a Paltrow play, Obiter only wonders what case will be next?

Gwyneth Goes Skiing runs from December 13 – 23 and tickets start at £15.
