Twelve Angry Men
A Classic American Drama
Behind closed doors, tensions run high as a lone juror argues the innocence of a teenager accused of murder. In this provocatively resonant American drama, 12 jurors from all strata of society revisit the evidence, debate the issue of reasonable doubt and confront each other’s personal biases.
Broadway director Sheldon Epps ignites a conversation about how prejudice obstructs the quest for justice.
This production is Helen Hayes Awards Recommended©.
