12 Angry Jurors puts you, the audience, in the midst of the jury deliberations of a homicide trial.  A dozen local citizens are entrusted with deciding the fate of a teenage boy accused of murdering his abusive father. As the play opens, our 12 jurors are nearly unanimous in concluding the youth is guilty. One juror dissents, declaring the young man “not guilty” and proceeding to sow a seed of reasonable doubt. As the emotionally charged jury deliberations proceed you are a right there as our jury struggles to understand the sworn testimony of several witnesses, to decide for themselves what is credible and what is “reasonable doubt”.  The jury’s decision is a surprise that you don’t want to miss.
