Twelve Angry Men
Twelve Angry Men
Amateur licenses now available in most U.S. and Canadian markets. Apply.
Drama. Adapted by Sherman L. Sergel. Based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.

Cast: 12m., 1 either gender and 2 offstage voices (or combined for a mixed cast.) A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it is, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will electrify your audience and keep them on the edge of their seats—add up to a fine, mature piece of dramatic literature, an experience you'll be proud to present. One int. set. Approximate running time: 80 minutes.

Also Available: Twelve Angry Women scripts

Notes
Twelve Angry Men may also be performed as Twelve Angry Women. Or by using a combination of these two editions, it can be staged with a mixed cast as Twelve Angry Jurorsposters are available for all three versions within the PDF file.

Should you wish to produce the play using a cast of ten women and five men, you would order ten copies of Code T43 and five copies of Code T42. Distribute the parts to suit the individual talents of the particular performers. You may use any combination of men and women totalling fifteen.

Because the pagination of the two editions differs, some directors prefer to order all one version and only one copy of the other version, notating changes in the individual scripts where necessary. The choice is yours. We do encourage you to order a preview copy of each edition in order to determine what will best serve your particular requirements.

The key parts to watch in casting are the parts of Jurors #3 and #8. These should probably be played by men, if you have them available—though any combination of men and women you have will work.
