Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose

Have You Seen It Productions

Author: Reginald Rose

Director: Trish Carr

Agent: An Amateur Production BY ARRANGEMENT WITH ORIGIN THEATRICAL, ON BEHALF OF SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Synopsis

Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose
New York City. 1957. One Room Filled With 12 Angry Men

Avid Theatre / Have You Seen It Productions are proud to present Twelve Angry Men, a gripping study of a jury locked up in a New York court of law. In stifling summer heat, 12 strangers consider their verdict of a young coloured man accused of murdering his father.

This play is an account of white, mostly middle-class jurors that favour a vote of guilty in this open-and-shut case, except for one man who thinks a reasonable doubt exists. So begins a penetrating examination of how men struggle to deliver justice in a world where prejudice, racism and privilege hold such strong sway, often below the surface.

First written in 1954, this powerful drama continues to enthral audiences 65 years later. Its themes are just as pertinent in our world today. NOTE: The role of Juror #8 is PRE-CAST.
