Twelve Angry Men unfolds in a New York City courtroom on a sweltering August evening as a jury is filed into a deliberation room. They are tasked with determining the verdict in a murder case in which a young man is accused of killing his father and faces the death penalty if found guilty. These dozen nameless men find themselves in the role of potential executioner, but first they must face themselves, their biases and their own sense of justice. What starts as an open-and-shut case soon twists into an edge of your seat drama as each juror begins to question how he should cast their vote.

This powerful and engaging production will be presented with a cast of 6 black and 6 white actors.

First created as a 1954 teleplay for the Studio One anthology television series, TWELVE ANGRY MEN was aired as a CBS live production on September 20, 1954. The following year, it was adapted by Rose as a stage play. In 1957 it was rewritten again as a feature film and directed by Sidney Lumet. Starring Henry Fonda, the film received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. Over the years, the play has received several noted revivals including a 2004 Broadway production starring Boyd Gaines and Philip Bosco and a 2007 US national tour starring George Wendt and Richard Thomas. And in 1997, TWELVE ANGRY MEN returned to the small screen in a new adaptation directed by William Friedkin, which included some modernizations to the script, and a cast led by George C. Scott and James Gandolfini.
