Wanderlust Theatre Co.'s 12 ANGRY MEN

It’s 1957, and a young man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father -- a charge that carries a mandatory death sentence. The fate of the defendant is in the hands of twelve strangers. In Reginald Rose’s classic, Twelve Angry Men, things get very personal as evidence is scrutinized, perspectives are questioned, and biases are revealed.

The ensemble cast is wholly comprised of seasoned theatre veterans. It includes Walter Brown, Aren Chaisson III, Steven Cooper, Joseph Diaz, Rudy Eisenzopf, John W. Fiero, Stefan Hannie, David Keadle, M. Brady McKellar, Milton G. Resweber, Robert D. Sidman, Phillip Spear and Duncan Thistlethwaite. Elsa Dimitriadis directs.

This is the sixth production in Wanderlust’s 2012-13 season. Other productions have included We All Do by Jarin Schexnider, You’ve Got Hate Mail by Van Zandt & Milmore and Slamdango! Puppet Slam as part of Festival International de Louisiane.

A talk back session will follow the Sunday, June 2 matinee that focuses on the complexities of race and juries and how they have been depicted in literature.
