Village Players of Hatboro Kicks Off 72nd Season with 12 Angry Jurors
Hatboro, PA (August 13, 2018) – The Village Players of Hatboro is exhilarated to announce its 72nd season opener, 12 Angry Jurors by Reginald Rose. The production runs on the main stage at Village Players of Hatboro, located at 401 Jefferson Avenue in Hatboro, PA 19040, from October 5th through the 20th on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Tickets are on sale now.
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 Jurors 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.
“I’m overwhelmed by how this diverse group has come together in such a short time and put together such impactful performances,” said Kara McCormick, Assistant Director. “I can’t wait to see the final product.”
