Twelve Angry Men & Women
Sept 16-Oct 16
It is 1959 and 12 jurors have been led into a jury room of a New York City court of law. They are given final instructions about determining the verdict in a murder case whose defendant faces the death penalty if found guilty.
Before deliberations begin, they take a short break after filing into the hot and stuffy room. They gather around a long table to begin discussions about the case. The defendant, a young man, is accused of killing his father; and, after a preliminary vote, all but one of the jurors presume he is guilty. Juror #8 is the only one who feels differently. Because they must come to a unanimous decision, debates begin.
It is agreed to go around the table and have each man explain why he believes the young man is guilty, in hopes of convincing Juror #8 to change his mind. They heatedly discuss the known facts of the case; and little by little the personalities, opinions, and biases of each juror become evident. Will this last juror obstinately stand his ground or can the others convince him otherwise. This production will be performed on alternate weekends as either Twelve Angry Women or Twelve Angry Men.
