Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose
We are proud to present 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose.
"Twelve Angry Men" did not begin on the stage as is often the case. Instead, the popular play was adapted from Reginald Rose's 1954 live teleplay that debuted on a CBS studios' series, "Studio One in Hollywood." In 1957, the famous film adaptation starring Henry Fonda was produced, and the stage play did not debut until 1964.
This is an iconic courtroom drama in which the audience never sees the inside of a courtroom. It is set entirely inside a crowded, steamy jury room and it is a script filled with little more than some of the best dramatic dialogue written.
"Twelve Angry Men" quickly became a classic story for stage and screen and Rose's cast of characters some of the most memorable in modern history. Yet, not one of the twelve jurors has a name, they are simply known by their juror numbers.
A reader may think that this somehow takes away from the characters' personalities or the audience's ability to relate to them. To the contrary, the unnamed men who are tasked with the fate of a young man could be your father, husband, son, or grandfather and every personality type is portrayed in this fascinating psychological drama.
