“Twelve Angry Jurors,” is Sherman Sergel’s adaptation of the Emmy Award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose, which tells the story of jurors deliberating the fate of a 19-year-old boy on trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts.
The deliberations become personal, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their own eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry people.
Tickets are available by calling 419-691-1398 or at the ticket booth the night of any show.
