Last night (19 August) a group of lawyers from Baker & McKenzie and Marque Lawyers took to the stage to participate in the Griffin Theatre Company's acting competition, Acting Up.

Acting Up is the Griffin Theatre Company's spin on corporate fundraising, giving professional groups the chance to live a day in the life of an actor.

The courageous lawyers rehearsed an excerpt from an Australian play with a professional director and actor and delivered an evening performance on stage at the SBW Stables Theatre in front of a judging panel, including writer and actor Brendan Cowell.

"It has been very entertaining to see lawyers playing the role of actors and I am sure it would be even more interesting to reverse those roles - actors as lawyers," Cowell said.

Representing Baker & McKenzie was partner Andrew Stewart, senior associates Sebastian Busa and Erica Kidman and director of talent management, Kate Muir, performing a piece from Speaking in Tongues, by Andrew Bovell.

One of two teams from Marque Lawyers took home the trophy with their excerpt from "After Dinner".
