BRATTLEBORO -- Vermont Theatre Company’s production of "Nuts," a high-intensity psychological courtroom drama by Tom Topor, directed by Brandon Batham, and co-produced by Bob Kramsky and Michelle Page, continues Thursday through Sunday at the Hooker-Dunham Theater, 139 Main St.

"Nuts" is the story of a call girl indicted for manslaughter who is determined to prove she is sane enough to stand trial in spite of her parents’ efforts, for fear of a public scandal, to stop her from proving to the judge she isn’t "nuts." In the process, her psyche and childhood are dissected, raising serious questions about sexual abuse and family and social dynamics that may have led her to a life of prostitution.

"Nuts" has been hailed as the best courtroom drama since "Witness for the Prosecution" and "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial." It was a hit on Broadway and a motion picture starring Barbra Streisand and Richard Dreyfuss. VTC’s production features Bridgett McBride in the lead role, supported by Ran3dy Bright, Nancy Groff, Francis Hauert, Ian Hefele, Jon Mack, John Ogorzalek, Brenda Seitz and Margo Langlois.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m., on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
