12 Angry Men

Come see 12 Angry Men!
by Reginald Rose

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 man; of a man 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 does become, 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 you and keep you on the edge of your seat!

An Interview with the Playwright

Local Playwright Pab Sungenis Brings Dark Comedy to South Jersey
By Kristina Gannotta

This week I sat down with local playwright Pab Sungenis, author of the new play Mourning Has Broken. In this dark comedy, six friends reunite at three funerals. As they try to keep their spirits up and their circle together, they find out more about each other (and themselves) than they ever wanted to know. With hilarious one-liners and an ensemble of characters that play off one-another’s rhetoric flawlessly, the writing in this play deserves a standing ovation. The show premieres at Cumberland Players in Vineland, NJ, December 5th and 6th.
