These modern-day morality plays are fraught with emotion as they delve in to the tangled issues of gender stereotypes, a mother’s unconditional love, familial grief and paranoia, as well as challenging the justice system itself. With cases of gang violence, murder, sexual assault and crimes of passion, are these everyday defendants the guilty or the victims?

Simon Gaskell (Sean Bean) stands nervously in the dock as he awaits the jury’s verdict. Will he walk free or go down?


Simon is a college English teacher who specialises in poetry and has a secret. His alter ego is a transvestite called Tracie Tremarco, who is gay, lonely, and looking for love. But trawling bars in Manchester dressed up to the nines, tottering on stilettos, and ready to pull has not produced a lasting or truly fulfilling relationship.
