Twelve Angry Men
Reginald Rose
An intense midnight quarrel leads to the murder of a man. Witnesses take the stand as his 16-year-old son is tried for homicide. With all testimonies against the boy, his fate now hangs by a thread as twelve jurors find themselves thick in the throes of rendering the final verdict.

In the stifling heat of the jury room, twelve personalities will clash in a bout of logic and intuition, reason and conscience. Caught between conflicting personal obsessions and prejudices, will the jurors emerge as defenders of justice, or were they destined to become hangmen ?

Adapted by Reginald Rose from his 1954 teleplay of the same name, Twelve Angry Men takes you deep into the tensions of this compelling courtroom drama classic as the jurors grapple to reach a unanimous decision.

Created by the team behind Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (Huayi 2012), Twelve Angry Men unites 12 male actors from Singapore's theatre scene in this provocative classic.
