The 2009 Saint Charles Seminary House Show!

Directed by: Joseph L. Grabowski

Showtimes: March 26th, 27th, and 28th at 7:30 PM

This year, the Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary community will be performing Reginald Rose's 12 Angry Men. The show tells the story of a jury member who tries to persuade the other eleven members to acquit the suspect on trial on the basis of reasonable doubt. The show is notable for its exclusive use of one set - the entire show takes place in the jury room.

Apart from two of the jurors swapping names while leaving the courthouse, no names are used in the film: the defendant is referred to as "the boy" and the witnesses as the "old man" and "the lady across the street".

In 2007, 12 Angry Men was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

If you have Facebook, check out the Facebook Event for the show.

I hope to see you there!
