The Franklin School for the Performing Arts Drama Department presents 12 Angry Jurors.
12 Angry Jurors is a play that contemplates the huge responsibility of 12 ordinary people as they consider the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of murder. The 12 jurors bring their own histories, prejudices, and biases to the jury room as they work through this life or death decision. In the year of George Floyd and countless others, this play works through the issues at hand in a very human way. It was originally written for men only (12 Angry Men), in a time before women could not serve jury duty. However, there have been countless productions where the cast has been entirely cast gender neutral. That is to say, any person any gender may be cast in any role within the play.
