12 Angry Jurors
2010

 

 

12 Angry Jurors

Don’t miss the latest theatrical production by the Showcase Repertory Company @ your NPR Library!

It’s a gripping, penetrating, and engrossing examination of a diverse group of twelve jurors (all male, mostly middle-aged, white, and generally of middle-class status) who are uncomfortably brought together to deliberate after hearing the ‘facts’ in a seemingly open-and-shut murder trial case. They retire to a jury room to do their civic duty and serve up a just verdict for the indigent minority defendant (with a criminal record) whose life is in the balance. The play is a powerful indictment, denouncement and expose of the trial by jury system.
