Twelve Angry Jurors by Reginald Rose

7:30 AM-9:00 PM, 2:00 PM-3:30 AM 

Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts 

McDonough 

2 Southbridge St.

Worcester, MA 01608

The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young Hispanic man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open-and-shut case soon becomes a story that presents a succession of clues creating doubt, and a mini-drama of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, immigration, the criminal justice system, the accused, and each other. Today’s political climate makes this play a must-see. New York Times – “An Enduring Tale of Bigotry and Justice.” New York Magazine – “It is a nudge toward our leaving the theater a bit better than we entered it.”

This gender neutral production is directed by NYC Mint Theater Company Founder Kelly Morgan (Professor of Theater at FSU), in this collaboration with Fitchburg State and 4th Wall Stage Company.
