Following its record breaking West End run this powerful new production of Twelve Angry Men brings to the stage the taut brilliance of the 1957 three-time Academy Award nominated film which as produced by and starred Henry Fonda, and is considered to be one of the great 'must-see' movies of all time.
A jury has murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father. But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a huge dilemma as prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables every which way, until the nail-biting climax...
