Richard Thomas and George Wendt inTwelve Angry Men
A Roundabout Theatre Company Production
Written by Reginald Rose
Directed by Scott Ellis Washington Post interview with Scott Ellis
Twelve jurors. Twelve walks of life. And only two ways to rule: guilty or not guilty. A young boy awaits sentencing for the manslaughter of his father. But what seems like an open-and-shut murder case becomes a twisted puzzle of prejudice and intrigue when a dozen men are corralled in a room to deliberate their verdict. As evidence is weighed and preconceptions are exposed, the entire jury is forced to look beyond the show of the courtroom to unearth the shocking truth. Faced with playing the hangmen, the twelve jurors must first face themselves. Emmy winner Richard Thomas (TV's The Waltons
, The Shakespeare Theatre Company's Richard II
) and six-time Emmy nominee George Wendt (TV's Cheers
) star in this gripping revival, which the New York Times
trumpeted as "the undeniable hit of the Broadway dramatic season!"
Note: This performance has no intermission.
