"Swift Justice"

Swift Justice
Tom McEnery
Based on the Book
Swift Justice: Murder and Vengeance in a California Town
By Harry Farrell

The Cast
A world premiere play about one dark blemish in San Jose’s history valiantly attempts to tell to 21st Century citizens a Depression-Era tale of murder and mob revenge but does so much more like a newspaper column that a drama on stage.  The result is that Tom McEnery’s Swift Justice at The Tabard Theatre Company unfortunately fails as a compelling script for live performance even as it draws in totally pre-sold-out audiences.  My full review is available at Talkin' Broadway:  

Rating: 1 E

Swift Justice continues its pre-sold-out run at The Tabard Theatre Company through January 24, 2016 at The Theatre on Pedro Square, 29 North San Pedro Street, San Jose.  While no tickets are left for this run, tickets are available for the upcoming I Do! I Do!, running February 12-28 by going online at or by calling 408-679-2330.
