toBriar Woods Theatre!This fall Briar Woods Theatre is proud to present Twelve Angry Jurors!In this dramatic selection, a 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it is, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry members of society. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will electrify your audience and keep them on the edge of their seats—add up to a fine and mature piece of dramatic literature.Performance dates are:November 6th at 7:30pmNovember 7th at 7:30pmNovmeber 8th at 7:30pmNovember 9th at 2:00 & 7:30pmandNovember 10th at 2:00pmConfigured in a true Black Box settting, seating will be limited to approximately 150 seats per show.
