Great classic play, Some actors were not yet ready for prime time, but on the whole, it was a pleasant experience.

the actors seemed to young for the parts they played. at times the main actor forgot his lines. Lines that should have been spoken and explianed by the only older actor... continued

A very well made re-enaction of the classic 12 Angry Men. The smallish room allocated to the performance gave a special type of atmosphere to this intimate drama. A very enjoyable experience.

Description

Running time: 80 minutes with no intermission._

_

A 19-year-old boy has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. “He doesn’t stand a chance,” mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case — until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts.   

“This is a remarkable thing about democracy,” says the foreign-born juror, “that we are notified by mail to come down to this place — and decide on the guilt or innocence of a man, … a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing.”   

But personal it does become, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their own eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry people. 12 Angry Jurors is adapted for the stage by Sherman L. Sergel from the original television show by Reginald Rose.
