In a sweltering jury room, twelve men determine the fate of a teenager accused of murder. Tensions flare and once-firm opinions are shaken as the truth shifts toward a verdict. Our production features the original text with a multi-racial cast -- creating a resonance both with the 1950s when the play was written as well as with the issues of our day. How does the jury decide? Join us for this timely and timeless drama and find out.

Context Questions:

1. The playwright does not state the race or nationality of the young man on trial. When you imagine him, who do you think he is? Who is the other to you?
2. The foreman is selected randomly. How different would this conversation be if another juror was foreman? (#3? #8? #7? #11?)
3. Is it possible to be objective—can we truly be tried by a jury of our peers when we all enter situations with our own experiences and perspectives in mind?
4. Do you have any experiences in a jury room? How did you enter the room? How did you leave it?
5. What does "reasonable doubt" mean to you?
6. Have you ever had your mind changed by someone else's view? What would it take to change your opinion when you thought you knew something was fact?
