“Twelve Angry Jurors” presents a cross section of a society whose job it is to determine the fate of a young man accused of murdering his father; a guilty verdict will sentence him to death. At first, eleven of the jurors believe the accused to be guilty. The lone holdout implores the other jurors to look beyond their prejudices and consider the case carefully. After all, it is about life and death. The production will be directed by MFA thesis candidate Jerry Entze.
