LAWYERS PLAY


The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and the Manitoba Bar Association
present the 25th annual Lawyers Play

Reginald Rose’s Emmy Award-winning classic drama

TWELVE ANGRY JURORS
Adapted by Sherman Sergel
Directed by Heidi Malazdrewich

May 3–6, 2017

On a hot summer day after a long trial, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murdering his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case – until one juror begins to open the eyes of the other 11. Tempers flare as the evidence is re-examined and new uncertainties come to light, forcing everyone to truly question if there is in fact some measure of "reasonable doubt." Twelve Angry Jurors is a heightened courtroom thriller that puts you on the edge of your seat while powerfully exploring what it means to live in a democracy.

Produced by special arrangement with the DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.
