Overshadowed Theatrical Productions
Twelve Angry Men & Women
September 16 – October 16
It is 1959 and 12 jurors have been led into a jury room of a New York City court of law. They are given final instructions about determining the verdict in a murder case whose defendant faces the death penalty if found guilty.
The defendant, a young man, is accused of killing his father; and, after a preliminary vote, all but one of the jurors presume he is guilty. They heatedly discuss the known facts of the case; and little by little the personalities, opinions, and biases of each juror become evident. Will this last juror obstinately stand his ground or can the others convince him otherwise.
This production will be performed on alternate weekends as either Twelve Angry Women or Twelve Angry Men. Why two casts? Is it different to tell the same story if presented by one or the other?
