A young man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father as the twelve jurors are taken into a bleak jury room to deliberate. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one voice challenges a deeper examination into the facts. Over the course of the play, tensions rise among the jurors, as they struggle to reconcile their own views with those of their fellow jurors. As deliberations continue, the jurors are forced to confront their own biases and assumptions, and to consider the implication of their decision on another man’s life.

Originally written by Reginald Rose as Twelve Angry Men, this version incorporates a jury of men and women tasked with deciding the young man’s fate. Intimately set inside the small jury room, the audience will have a personal vantage point in our black-box staging from which they can witness this high-stakes drama sure to leave them on the edge of their seat. (This production is not recommended for young children.)
