An Amateur Production by arrangement with ORIGIN THEATRICAL on behalf of SAMUEL FRENCH LTD - AVID Theatre in collaboration with Have You Seen It Productions are proud to present 12 Angry Men for a strictly limited season - 13 performances only. Tickets are now on sale.
The play 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose was adapted from his 1954 teleplay of the same title and is regarded as one of theatre history's most prominent, debated and never-more relevant works to the stage. In 1957, 12 Angry Men was made into an acclaimed feature film, starring Henry Fonda and directed by Sidney Lumet. In 2007, the feature film was selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
The upcoming stage production is directed by Trish Carr and depicts a gripping examination of twelve jurors as they deliberate the conviction or acquittal of a 16-year-old defendant on the basis of reasonable doubt, in a seemingly open-and-shut case.
Led by one man's courage to stand up for his beliefs and search for the truth, the other jurors, intent on playing the hangman, are forced to confront their own moral code and personal motivations whilst deciding on the fate of the boy.
From the Civil Rights protests of the 1950s to the recent chaos that unfolded in the US Capitol, 12 Angry Men explores the timeless themes of justice, innocence, prejudice and class whilst drawing on the cultural ethos of a tumultuous post-WW2 era.
Don't miss this special opportunity to see 12 Angry Men live on stage at Stageworx Theatre, 3/21 Stud Road, Bayswater (near Mountain Hwy).
