A 19-year-old man 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 noticed by mail to come down to this place and decide the guilt or innocence of a man; of 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-examines, the murder is re-enacted, and a new murder threat is born before their eyes. Tempers get short. Arguments get heated. And the jurors become 12 angry men and women. The jurors’ final verdict and how they reach it will electrify you and keep you on the edge of your seat.
12 Angry Jurors presented by the HHS Theatre Dept. and sponsored by Sprott, Golden & Bardwell runs Nov. 14 and 16 at 6:00pm, November 15 at 5 p.m. and Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. It will be performed at HHS in the black box theatre in the Theatre Room. Tickets are available at TheLyric.org.
