Travel Guide

The Trial of Lotta Rae

This is the crime of the century set in London.

This is not based on a real case but it could well be, sadly. A woman is raped by a wealthy man and guess who is believed? Even the lawyer that takes on her case doesn’t seem to be on her side. Years later, they will meet again and this time things will be different.

The legal proceedings of a case at the turn of the century is the real setting as are various sites across London. How much have we come along the journey in protecting victims in court no matter if they are man or woman, rich or poor? That seems to be a very short journey since 1906.
