The American Theatre Company will be performing Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose, directed by Deborah Griffith at the Palais de Beaux Arts Studio Theatre from 22-26 October 2013.
12 Angry Men is the story of twelve men‚ trapped in a jury room‚ who must decide on the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of murdering his father. Tensions run high as personalities come into conflict‚ stereotypes and prejudices are confronted‚ and societal assumptions are called into question.
Although the original text of this classic American drama dates from 1957‚ its message still resonates today: democracy and justice cannot function without a commitment from members of society to take part in the process. To quote Plato‚ “The price of apathy in public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”
Tickets are available from the Palais de Beaux Arts web site.
