TWELVE ANGRY MEN
By Reginald Rose
Directed by Sheldon Epps
TWELVE ANGRY MEN unfolds in a New York City courtroom on a sweltering August evening as a jury is filed into a deliberation room. They are tasked with determining the verdict in a murder case in which a young man is accused of killing his father and faces the death penalty if found guilty. These dozen nameless men find themselves in the role of potential executioner, but first they must face themselves, their biases and their own sense of justice. What starts as an open-and-shut case soon twists into an edge of your seat drama as each juror begins to question how he should cast their vote. This powerful and engaging production will feature six black and six white actors.
"I hope that our production of this great American classic will prompt serious dialogue onstage and off about the vitally important issue of race in America. In some quite startling ways, the play reflects issues that are daily in the headlines. It mirrors the ongoing challenges that come from assumptions and pre-conceptions that are, alas, still with us."
- Sheldon Epps
