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.

Warehouse Studio Theatre, 1 & 2 November 2013 at 8pm
Tickets €15, available here: Swan: Skylight (1-2 Nov 2013).
ETCetera asbl has the pleasure of presenting a new event in November 2013: “Buonaparte: rise and fall”, an evening of two plays about the famous historical figure, at moments when he was not yet, or was not any longer, the Emperor of France.
The evening includes two plays about Napoleon:
- “Man of Destiny” by Bernard Shaw, performed in English, with French surtitles.
- “La Dernière Salve” by Jean-Claude Brisville, performed in French, with English surtitles.
Both plays put up hypothetical relationships, some based on truth, with argument and humour, against which Napoleon the man emerges from Napoleon the myth.
The performances will take place from 5-9 November 2013 in the Warehouse Studio Theatre, rue Waelhem 69a, 1030 Schaerbeek, at 20.00.
“Man of Destiny” is directed by Hugh Dow, “La Dernière Salve” by Marc Léotard, both experienced Brussels-based theatre directors and actors.
