"Twelve Angry Men" is an examination of the American melting pot and our judicial system. Playwright Rose skillfully sets in opposition twelve diverse people, an accusation and one man's belief in "reasonable doubt." All have the same task. All have to coexist in one room. They wrestle with their responsibility to each other, themselves and the system. On a sweltering summer evening, the jury room erupts into a powerful debate which ultimately forces each man to face himself.
Pendragon is the Adirondack's only year-round professional theater. It is supported
in part by public funds from The New York State Council on the Arts, a New York State
agency, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
