About the Production

In Twelve Angry Jurors, on a hot summer day, a jury prepares to deliberate the case of an inner-city youth accused of killing his abusive father. At first, the case seems clear but when one juror votes not guilty, fault lines begin to appear. Disagreements and conflicts force the jurors to question their own motivations, morals, prejudices, and values. Twelve Angry Jurors has been called a tribute to the common man holding out against lynch mob mentality and is a powerful exploration of what it means to live in a democracy.

About the Characters

Cast:

12 Jurors – any age, any ethnicity, any gender*; will play as adults old enough to be seated on a jury

1 Guard – any age, any ethnicity, any gender; will play as an adult old enough to be a police officer.  This is a great role for someone wanting to get into acting who may have no previous experience.  The Guard is the first person to speak after the curtain rises and interacts with the jury members several times during the play.

 

This production has opportunities for everyone in support of our commitment to diverse, inclusive casting.  Casting will be determined by the production team following auditions and may vary significantly from expectations.  We are excited to have you at auditions and look forward to hearing your interpretations of lines and characters. 

 

*Per our licensing agreement, Jurors #3 and #8 will be cast with male-presenting actors.

Character Advisory:  This production contains adult language and themes including racism, violence, poverty, and murder.  In addition, all characters will be onstage with a prop switchblade knife, and most will interact physically with the prop.

Covid-19:

We are monitoring Covid safety and evaluating policies, and the safety of our cast, crew, audience, and staff is among our top priorities. During Season 6, masks will not be required onstage or in the audience but will be reassessed in the case of another outbreak.
