It was a great show and it was about 65 minutes which was good also. You felt like you were part of the show as the theatre is intimate.

Very interesting production however it was only 65 minutes long which surprised me. No intermissions and moved along at a good clip

This play was very well done. The only comment I would have is that when the arguments were presented the opponents changed their minds very quickly - too quickly in my experience. This resulted in a very foreshortened play. It would have been...continued

Description

Directed by Zach Curtis, American playwright Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men is a powerful indictment, denouncement and exposé of the trial by jury system. It is a taut, engrossing drama in which eleven jurors believe the defendant in a capital murder trial is guilty, while one juror stands up courageously for what he believes is justice and tries to persuade the others to his way of thinking. The defendant is on trial as well as the jury and the American judicial system with its purported sense of infallibility, fairness and lack of bias.

Twelve Angry Men examines the jurors’ deep-seated personal prejudices, perceptual biases and weaknesses, indifference, anger, personalities, unreliable judgments, cultural differences, ignorance and fears, that threaten to taint their decision-making abilities, causing them to ignore the real issues in the case, and potentially lead them to a miscarriage of justice.

The movie of the same name starred notables Henry Fonda, E.G. Marshall, Ed Begley, Lee J. Cobb, Martin Balsam, Jack Klugman and Jack Warden.

This production features the talented cast of Gabriele Angieri, Al Broeffle, Sean Byrd, Dwight Gunderson, Grant Henderson, Brian Kelly, Nicholas Leeman, Dale Pfeilsticker, Michael David Postle, Jim Pounds, Joel Raney, Peter Simmons and William P. Studer.
