Classic drama returns to the Dundas with 12 Angry Men
Submitted by Keen i Media   

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Murder, prejudice and doubt are just a few of the themes that drive the story of 12 Angry Men, a new live stage production that opens Thursday, June 26 at the Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts on Mackey Street.

The production is presented by Ringplay Productions, a local theatre group that now manages the Dundas theatre, and features many veterans and a few newcomers to the stage.

Set in 1950s New York City, 12 Angry Men follows the conflict, doubt and responsibility that a jury has in deciding the fate of a young man accused of killing his father. The well-known play has been adapted into multiple films and is considered one of the modern classics.

At the beginning of the play, eleven jurors vote "guilty." Only one man, Juror #8, believes that the young man might be innocent. He must convince the others that "reasonable doubt" exists.

Philip Burrows directs the play, and is excited to bring it back to the Dundas stage. "We've got a wonderfully diverse cast, with some who are new to the stage and others who are back after a long absence," Burrows said. "This classic piece of drama is an excellent way to showcase the Bahamian talent we have here at home. 12 Angry Men is also important as we see it as the re-launch of consistent live theatre back at the Dundas."
