Join us as we welcome back an audience into our theatre for the first time in two years. We are pleased to present the gritty drama 12 Angry Jurors a revised multi gendered take on the 1950’s classic 12 Angry Men.
Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy’s fate.
Over the past few months, the actors of the Emerson Theatre have gone to their computers and drafted a set of original plays for production this semester. As our stage is empty, well not empty, actually full of stuff, but empty of the human element, these plays have been recorded and mixed for your enjoyment. They are best listened to while sitting back half way between the relm of awake and asleep. We have for you our first two installments of the series. Speak No Evil by Alissa Hernandez and The Kids of Raven Valley by Alyssa Mejia.
