KWLT proudly presents
Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose
at the Registry Theatre
12 Angry Men, written by Reginald Rose, is a play that deals with the issues of justice, prejudice, group dynamics and the presumption of innocence.
The story, taking place during the 1950s, begins after closing arguments have been presented in a homicide case. Twelve men must unanimously decide on a verdict of 'guilty' or 'not guilty'. The show takes place in the jury room, as the twelve men deliberate the case of a young man accused of the murder of his father. Throughout the
deliberation, tensions rise, facts are examined, motives and questions, and the truth comes out, not just within the confines of the case at hand, but also from within the
various jurors themselves.
12 Angry Men was originally written as a television screenplay as was broadcast on CBS in 1954. In 1957, the film was adapted into a star-studded film starring Henry Fonda. The film was nominated for three academy awards. The film was recently announced as the second best courtroom drama in film history by the American Film
Other famous remakes of this show include a 1997 television version starring Jack Lemon, and a 2007 successful run on broadway starring Richard Thomas and George Wendt.
The cast (and crew) of this production of 12 Angry Men are volunteer, amateur thespians from the region of Waterloo. The cast promises to delivery an emotional, impactful and memorable show.
