It has become a biannual event in the nation’s capital since its inception back in 1994.

This month, Shakespeare Theatre will present a special “Virtual Mock Trial” on June 22.

“It’s always based on a fictional character from one of the plays that we’ve produced,” artistic director Simon Godwin told WTOP. “I arrived in the fall to take over for Michael Kahn and saw my first event earlier this year. It was extraordinary, funny, clever, brilliant.”

While the last Mock Trial involved “Peter Pan,” this time they’ll argue a case from “A Midsummer Night’s Force Majeure,” a re-imagining of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

1. I wonder whose bright idea it was to include Neomi Rao in the panel?
