As the Bucks Herald reported shortly after the play, Trial by Jury was admirably presented, and the audience was soon in roars of laughter by the amusing situations created in the court of justice”.

Both plays were presented in aid of the British Legion.

The Society’s first production was in 1930 and the proceeds from that went the Royal Bucks Hospital fund.
