Fall Play: Twelve Angry Women

Join us for the Fall Play, Twelve Angry Women, on November 10, 11, and 12 at 7 pm in the Tom King Theater at Atlanta Girls’ School. 

Twelve Angry Women, the all-female version of Twelve Angry Men, adapted by Sherman L. Sergel and based on the Emmy Award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.

Synopsis: 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.” But 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 the jurors become 12 angry women.
