We’re Back!

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.
