About Twelve Angry Men
Martin Shaw, Jeff Fahey, Nick Moran and Robert Vaughn star in a new production of Twelve Angry Men at the Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited season.
Written by Reginald Rose, this brand new production directed by Christopher Haydon pays tribute to the Academy Award nominated 1957 film which was produced by and starred Henry Fonda. Lauded as one of the great ‘must-see’ movies of all time, Twelve Angry Men originated as a television play and has been successfully adapted for film, radio and stage.
In Twelve Angry Men, the jurors have 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 dilemma for the twelve, as their prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables every which way, until the nail-biting climax.
