Twelve Angry Jurors @ Roxy Lane Theatre

Description:

AN all-female version (bar one) of Twelve Angry Men at the Roxy Lane Theatre, re-titled Twelve Angry Jurors, is putting a new spin on the classic courtroom drama.

Presented by ARENAarts and directed by Simon James, the setting has also been changed from 1950s America to Australia during World War II – but the basic premise remains the same.

A young man is accused of stabbing his father to death and, after hearing days of evidence, 11 jurors vote guilty with one voting against.

What follows is a tense drama of contradictory evidence and conflicting personalities that will keep audiences guessing to the end.

First created for television in 1954, Twelve Angry Men became a stage play the following year and then a feature film with Henry Fonda in 1957, scoring three Academy Award nominations.

Twelve Angry Jurors plays at 8pm May 17, 18, 24, 25, 30, 31 and June 1 with 2pm matinees May 19 and 26. Tickets are $22, $16 concession – book at www.TAZTix.com.au or call TAZTix on 9255 3336.

The Roxy Lane Theatre is on the corner of Ninth Avenue and Roxy Lane, Maylands.
