Twelve Angry Men

Twelve Angry Men

Following its record breaking West End run this new production of Twelve Angry Men brings to the stage the taut brilliance of the 1957 three-time Academy Award nominated film which was produced by and starred Henry Fonda, and is considered to be one of the great ‘must-see’ movies of all time.

A jury has murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father. But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a huge dilemma as prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables every which way, until the nail-biting climax.

The critical consensus

There is no doubt as to the commitment of the cast and creative team who deliver an all-engrossing, all-absorbing, engaging production.

****(*)Susan Lowes, All Edinburgh Theatre, 24/02/2015

A poignant reminder of miscarriages of justice where innocent men are still languishing on death row in America convicted of crimes they didn’t commit.

****(*)Barbara Bryan, Edinburgh Guide, 24/02/2015

As the facts are gradually revealed over the next two riveting hours, they also lay bare an assortment of everyday prejudices and knee-jerk notions of law and order fuelled by ignorance, fear and self-loathing.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 25/02/2015

It’s a very classy, expertly performed drama that whilst not bringing anything particularly new to the legacy of the great script, remains a solid, dignified and thrilling production.

****(*)Stewart McLaren, TVBomb, 26/02/2015

Terrific performances delivered by a mighty team of actors, led by a brilliant, thoughtful Tom Conti.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 28/02/2015

The fast moving script still grips after all these years and Twelve Angry Men remains undeniably a theatrical tour de force.
