Twelve Angry Men at the Garrick Theatre starring Martin Shaw
Reginald Rose’s classic drama Twelve Angry Men comes to the Garrick Theatre in London starring Martin Shaw, Jeff Fahey, Nick Moran and Robert Vaughn.
Classic courtroom drama Twelve Angry Men reappears in the West End this winter. The much-loved drama, which was famously turned into a movie starring Henry Fonda, features an all-star cast including Martin Shaw (Judge John Deed), Jeff Fahey (Lost), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels) and Robert Vaughn (Hustle).
Other cast include Luke Shaw, David Calvitto , Paul Antony-Barber, Ed Franklin , Robert Blythe, Miles Richardson, Martin Turner, Owen O’Neil and Jason Riddington.
12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose is directed by Christopher Haydon and produced by Bill Kenwright.
Martin Shaw stars as juror number 8 until 29 March 2014. Award-winning actor Tom Conti will then take over the role from 31 March 2014.
The play centres on the deliberations of a jury of twelve men during a homicide trial as they consider whether a young man murdered his father in cold blood. They start with a near unanimous verdict of guilty in a case that clearly seems open and shut. But one single dissenter sows a seed of reasonable doubt and plants this in the minds of the rest of the jury as the play builds to a nail-biting climax.
