(Northport, NY- September 2, 2013) – Announcing the cast and creative team for the timeless classic of deliberation and consequence, TWELVE ANGRY MEN by Reginald Rose. Previews begin on Thursday, September 19 at 8:00 p.m. with the official opening on Saturday, September 21 at 8:00 p.m. and running through November 3, 2013.
The defense and the prosecution have rested. The jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young man is guilty or innocent of murdering his own father. What begins as an open and shut case of murder soon becomes a mini-drama exploring each juror’s prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused and each other. Based on Reginald Rose’s 1954 teleplay, TWELVE ANGRY MEN won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play in 2005.
