THE STORY

A young man’s life hangs in the balance as a trial jury meets behind closed doors to debate his guilt or innocence. Did he kill his father? Or is there reasonable doubt? What is justice, and how do we achieve it? You will be on the edge of your seat as a dozen people with different viewpoints try to agree on one verdict. This classic American drama from the 1950s could have been written yesterday with its provocative look at power, prejudice, and clashing perspectives.


NOTES ON CHARACTERS

FOREPERSON: A small, petty person who is impressed with the authority he/she has and
handles him/herself quite formally. Not overly bright, but dogged.

JUROR NO. TWO: A meek, hesitant person who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of their
own. Easily swayed and usually adopts the opinion of the last person to whom they have
spoken.

JUROR NO. THREE: He is a very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated man within whom
can be detected a streak of sadism. Also, he is a humorless man who is intolerant of opinions
other than his own, and accustomed to forcing his wishes and views upon others.

JUROR NO. FOUR: A person of wealth and position, and a practiced speaker who presents
her/himself well at all times. Seems to feel a little bit above the rest of the jurors. The only
concern is with the facts in this case and is appalled with the behavior of the others.

JUROR NO. FIVE: A naive, very frightened person who takes his obligations in this case very
seriously but who finds it difficult to speak up when the elders have the floor. Has lived in
dangerous neighborhoods.

JUROR NO. SIX: An honest but dull-witted person who comes upon decisions slowly and
carefully. Someone who finds it difficult to create positive opinions, but who must listen to and
digest and accept those opinions offered by others which appeal to him/her most.

JUROR NO. SEVEN: He is a loud, flashy, glad-handed sales-man type who has more important
things to do than to sit on a jury. He is quick. to show temper and equally quick to form opinions
on things about which he knows nothing. He is a bully, and, of course, a coward.

JUROR NO. EIGHT: He is a quiet, thoughtful, gentle man—a man who sees all sides of every
question and constantly seeks the truth. He is a man of strength tempered with compassion.
Above all, he is a man who wants justice to be done, and will fight to see that it is.

JUROR NO. NINE: He is a mild, gentle elderly person, long since defeated by life, and now
merely waiting to die. Recognizes him/herself for what he/she is, and mourns the days when it
would have been possible to be courageous without shielding himself behind so many years.

JUROR NO. TEN: He is an angry, bitter man—a man who antagonizes almost at sight. He is
also a bigot who places no values on any human life save his own. Here is a man who has been
nowhere and is going nowhere and knows it deep within him.

JUROR NO. ELEVEN: A refugee from Europe. Speaks with an accent and is ashamed, humble,
almost subservient to the people around him/her. Will honestly seek justice after having suffered
through so much injustice.

JUROR NO. TWELVE: A slick, bright advertising exec who thinks of human beings in terms of
percentages, graphs and polls, and has no real understanding of people. A superficial snob, but
trying to be a good person.

GUARD: This is a bit part. He can be any age and wears a uniform.
