A Broadway hit, Nuts has been called the best courtroom melodrama since Witness for the Prosecution and The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. Set in a courtroom in New York's Bellevue Hospital, the story follows a high-priced call girl incarcerated on a charge for killing a violent "john." The State, represented by a court appointed psychiatrist and an aggressive prosecutor, says Claudia Faith Draper is unfit to stand trial. As testimony from experts, physicians and her parents unfold, with her psyche and childhood dissected, she proves to the judge that she isn't "nuts" and stands legally sane at trial for manslaughter
