|ABOUT THE SHOW
May 16 - June 9
| One man will make a difference in
Reginald Rose’s classic courtroom drama
Just one vote stands between the guilt and innocence of a young man. That’s the suspenseful
puzzle of intrigue and courage at play in the City Theatre’s summer season opener Twelve Angry
Men, a riveting courtroom drama about the effect one voice can have on a jury. The show runs
May 16 through June 9, 2013.
“This man has been standing alone against us. It's not easy to stand alone against the
ridicule of others. He gambled for support -and I gave it to him.” - Juror 9
Audiences are getting fired about Twelve Angry
Men, and the verdict is in: This is “one of the
greatest courtroom dramas ever made.” The
powerful play has been a celebrated TV drama,
an Oscar-winning film, starring Henry Fonda,
and most recently, a hit Broadway revival. It is
the gripping examination of twelve jurors as they
deliberate after hearing the arguments in a
seemingly open-and-shut case. As prejudices
are tested and evidence weighed, the entire jury
is forced to look past the show of the courtroom
to unearth the shocking truth. Faced with playing
the hangmen, these dozen men must first face
themselves. The production set in 1950s post-war American not only examines the principles of
justice but also the courage in standing up for what you believe in and the belief in our modern
society that a person is innocent until proven guilty.
“It's always difficult to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And wherever you
run into it, prejudice always obscures the truth.” – Juror 8
“Twelve Angry Men invites the audience to take a
hard-hitting look at the judicial process, and to do
it with honesty, compassion and courage,"
mentions Artistic Director, Andy Berkovsky. "This
timeless masterpiece with its incredible writing
and the talented cast of actors we have
assembled should culminate into a tremendous
night of theatre that we are excited to share with
audiences!” And the City Theatre has assembled
an outstanding ensemble for the production
including Rick Smith, Brian Miller, Rick Felkins,
Jeff Patterson, Rob Mora, Michael Rains,
Andy Brown, Jim Lindsay, John Meadows,
Freddy Carnes, Kirk Miller, Johnny Stewart and Dave Westenbarger. The play is directed by
guest director Karen Sneed who led the successful City Theatre productions The Imaginary Invalid
