Very intense. The venue was so intimate, it almost felt as if we were part of the jury needing to make the decision ourselves. It was a very short play, only 66 minutes, but very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend "Twelve Angry Men" to...continued

Quotes & Highlights

In 2005, the Broadway revival won the Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Play and a Tony Award nomination in the same category.


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.
