Among the jury members are Tom Conti and Denis Lill.
A jury decide the fate of a young man accused of killing his father, but prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables until the climax.
The tremendous film by Sidney Lumet and starring Henry Fonda was always ripe for a good stage adpatation, and here it is. It isn;t the first time it has taken to the stage, but the reviews for this production have been pretty good (4 stars from Time Out thank you very much for asking).
Whilst the play is a little dated - 12 white men as a jury wouldn't happen now but that was the norm back in the 1950s, the sense of claustrophobia and unjustice are as strong as ever.
