Bill Kenwright has extended the run of his new West End production of Twelve Angry Men, starring Martin Shaw, Jeff Fahey, Nick Moran and Robert Vaughn, at the Garrick Theatre. The production will run for an extra two weeks, closing on Saturday 15th March 2014.
Twelve Angry Men was originally a television play and has been successfully adapted for film, radio and stage. 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.
Twelve 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...
The Daily Mail described the production as ‘'Electric, incisive and slick – a fine spectacle' whilst the SundayTelegraph wrote ‘Reginald Rose's cracking courtroom drama has to be the classiest most intelligent now playing in the West End.
