TWELVE ANGRY JURORS OFFERS CHARACTER STUDY OF TRIAL JURORS

LA CROSSE, Wis.—The La Croix Black Box Theatre at Viterbo University becomes a jury room during the performance of Twelve Angry Jurors Thursday, Nov. 14-Sunday, Nov. 18.

 Performed each evening at 7:30 p.m., Twelve Angry Jurors is a play about 12 very different jurors who head to the claustrophobic jury room one stifling summer day. It isn’t just a teenage Puerto Rican murder defendant on trial; it’s the American judicial system. What seems like an open-and-shut case becomes anything but when one brave dissenter votes "not guilty" and begins to open the others’ eyes to the facts.

Things get personal when the jurors begin to reveal their characters, re-examine testimonies, re-enact the murder, and even threaten a new one before their very eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry people.

Tickets for Twelve Angry Jurors are $9. Call the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100 for more information.
