12 Angry Jurors

By : playerstheatreSRQ

On a hot summer day after a long trial, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murdering his father. The jury votes 11-1 that the man is guilty of the crime, but laws in the United States require a unanimous vote by all 12 jurors in order to pass judgment. Tempers flare as the eleven jurors try their best to convince the 1 dissenter to come around to their side. As the evidence is re-examined, however, new uncertainties come to light, forcing everyone to truly question if there is in fact some measure of “reasonable doubt”. Twelve Angry Men is a heightened courtroom thriller that puts you on the edge of your site while powerfully exploring what it means to live in a democracy.

The Vagrant

By Brett Hursey

Sept 29-Oct 14, 2017 * Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 * Sundays at 6pm

Tickets $15.00 when purchased in advance online. $20.00 cash at the door with a $5.00 discount for students, seniors, military, investment bankers, hot dog vendors, social workers and anyone who has been homeless at one point or another in their lives. Free to anyone who is currently homeless.

Lenny Madison is well adjusted to life on the streets of NYC. He swindles hot dogs from Rodney and takes care of Maggie the bag lady. Mr. Edgeworth provides a lifeline to a reality he’d rather ignore. When he begins cavorting with John and Rachael it suddenly becomes too difficult to hide in plain sight.
