Twelve Angry Jurors
By Reginald Rose
Adapted by Sherman L. Sergel
Directed by Griffin Hammel
A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." However, personal it is, with each juror revealing his or her own character, as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and these good men and women become 12 angry jurors.
Strong language and adult content.
Marcus is Walking: Scenes from the Road
By Joan Ackermann
Directed by J. Brent Alford
November 29–December 3
Written to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the car, the play examines the emotional landscape we roam as we travel in our cars. Control, navigation, love and escape, are some of the themes explored. A protective father shepherds his son through the neighborhood on Halloween; an actor on his way to perform Hamlet provokes a rear-end collision and confrontation with a Czech émigré cab driver; a devastated businessman strikes up an unlikely alliance with a homeless woman who sleeps in his car. This is the landscape of human frailty and vulnerability, charm and strength; a playwright's whimsy combined with a shrewd sense of observation.
Eleven vignettes in an automobile provide a marvelously offbeat, winning evening. "In Ackermann's hands, the maps that are not so easily read are what count. This is a play about connections and how we make them; how we get to where we are or where we are going, over roads that are not always so well-traveled…[a] remarkable, thoroughly engaging new play…" —Berkshire Eagle.
Appropriate for all audiences.
