Teledrama comes alive

Cabrini College’s theatre will open its doors for the fall production of “12 Angry Jurors” Thursday, Nov. 6.

“12 Angry Jurors” was written by Reginald Rose in 1957 and portrays 12 angry jurors who are placed in a tiny conference room where they have to decide the fate of a minor’s life.

A 16 year old boy had been accused of murdering his own father.

Even though there is strict evidence that the boy committed the crime, there is still one juror who forces everyone to slowly and surely change their minds.

The room that the 12 jurors sit in is not air conditioned, the fan doesn’t work and worst of all, it is the hottest day on record that year.

The jurors learn each others’ personalities, but somehow they do not learn one another’s names in the whole process.

Once the audience members step into the theatre, they find themselves as unseen members of the jury.

Audience members are able to formulate their own opinions of whether or not the boy committed the crime.

As the theatre begins to grow each year, it is no surprise that the technical crew has added a new feature to the infrastructure of the play.

For free tickets and information, students and the Cabrini community can contact the Student Engagement and Leadership Office.

The show will run on Thursday, Nov. 6, Friday, Nov. 7, Saturday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. The second weekend it will run Thursday, Nov 13 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 16 at 2 p.m.
