12 ANGRY MEN
Directed by Jackie McDonald
June 8 - 17, 2018

12 Angry Men, written my Reginald Rose, premiered onstage in 2004, 50 years after the teleplay first aired on CBS. Adapted for the silver screen in 1957, winning critical acclaim and three Academy Award nominations, 12 Angry Men did not become a classic until it was aired on broadcast television. Winner of the 2004 Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Play, and 2005 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
The Jurors are entering the Jury Room to deliberate the fate of a young man who could face the death penalty. While eleven of the Jurors are convinced of the accused guilt, Juror Number 8 has some reservations, and he believes, reasonable doubt. Rose’s examination of the jury system, the pressure of the need for a unanimous vote, and the different levels of commitment of each of the jurors to their task, gives us a glimpse of stain the 12 men face in coming to their final vote. As the jurors deliberate, argue, and investigate the evidence, they are forced to investigate the reasons behind their rush to judgement, and the prejudice that they each have brought with them to the table.
