Twelve Angry Jurors

About the Play

Twelve Angry Jurors is exactly the same play as Twelve Angry Men, written by Reginald Rose for a television special in 1954 and then adapted for the stage by Sherman Shergel in 1955.  It was made into a film starring Henry Fonda in 1957.  Why the jury consisted of men only is a mystery, as women were common on juries at the time.  In our production, many of the jurors are women, and it is traditional to rename the play as Twelve Angry Jurors whenever a mixed cast is used.  Set in the 1950′s when the death penalty was usual in homicide cases, it is the story of jury room deliberations that will decide the fate of a young man accused of murdering his father.  As it deals with prejudice, apathy, and short-sightedness within the jury,it is as timely today as it was 70 years ago.
