The 1957 film version of Twelve Angry Men starring Henry Fonda is an undisputed cinema classic and arguably the greatest trial drama of them all.
Set almost entirely on one, nail-bitingly claustrophobic set, Reginald Rose’s taut procedural originated as a TV play prior to its double-Oscar-nominated film incarnation, and as such it’s a perfect fit for the stage.
Especially when the cast of jurors is played by major-league talents including Tom Conti, Jeff Fahey, William Gaminara and Robert Vaughn.
What's the story?
Twelve 'good men and true' convene in a jury room, with murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father.
But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a burning dilemma, as their prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial and each other collide, ratcheting the tension to breaking point and setting the stage for a nail-biting climax.
Who's in it?
Tom Conti is one of the most respected and celebrated actors of his generation. He's essayed memorable leading roles in hit films including Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and Shirley Valentine.
His recent movies include The Dark Knight Rises and Street Dance. His awards include an Olivier and a Tony for his stage performance in Whose Life is it Anyway?, and a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role in Reuben Reuben. He and Dame Judi Dench were recently jointly voted the Most Popular Actors in the West End of the last 25 years.
Jeff Fahey rose to fame in ‘80s sci-fi movie The Lawnmower Man. He’s appeared in Roberto Rodriguez's Machete, Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse and Clint Eastwood's White Hunter Black Heart, and is familiar to fans of TV's Lost as Frank Lapidus.
Robert Vaughn became a pop culture legend as Napoleon Solo in classic '60s TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. He’s had memorable roles in cult films including Demon Seed and definitive '50s B-Movie Teenage Caveman, and in legitimate film classics The Magnificent Seven, Bullitt and The Towering Inferno. In recent years he’s made a mark on British TV as Albert Stroller in Hustle, and has guested on Coronation Street.
Best known for his role as Professor Leo Dalton in Silent Witness, William Gaminara's other TV credits include A Dark Adapted Eye, Dangerfield and The House of Eliott.

Theatre credits include Howard Brenton's Bloody Poetry, The Children’s Hour, Body of An American and John, Paul, Ringo, George and Bert.
Who is Twelve Angry Men suitable for?
This production has been rewarded with critical raves and is every bit as tight and compelling as its publicity suggests. It features masterclass-level performances from its four headlining names and the remaining cast.
If you're a fan of the film you won't be disappointed. If you're coming to it cold, you'll be on the edge of your seat from start to finish regardless.
