About the showBased on the 1957 film version of Twelve Angry Men starring Henry Fonda, this brand new stage adaptation is a gripping and exciting production. Whilst the film is considered to be a true cinema classic and arguably one of the greatest trial dramas of all time, Reginald Rose's work began as a TV play, making it a perfect fit for the stage. Complete with a cast of experienced, well known actors, this is one West End production that you will not want to miss.
As twelve 'good men and true' convene in a jury room, they find themselves with a life in their hands. As they decide the fate of a young delinquent who has been accused of killing his own father, tensions begin to run high in this claustrophobic environment. Whilst it appears to be an open case, it soon escalates into mayhem, as each of the men allow their own prejudices about both the trial and each other to surface. As they debate, these tensions rise to breaking point, leading to a nail-biting climax.
Twelve Angry Men stars Tony and Olivier Award winner Tom Conti as Juror No. 8. Conti is best known for staring in films such as Shirley Valentine and more recently The Dark Knight Rises.
He is joined by Jeff Fahey, who rose to fame in the 80's sci-fi movie The Lawnmower Man and has since starred as Frank Lapidus in Lost. Robert Vaughn (The Magnificent Seven, Bullitt, Towering Inferno) and William Gaminara best known for playing Professor Leo Dalton in Silent Witness.
