Join us for our 3rd show of the season!


On a hot summer day after a long trail, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murdering his father. Initially, all jurors, except one, are convinced of the boy’s guilt and are ready to convict him. However, as they deliberate and discuss the evidence, the jurors begin to question their certainty. The play explores themes of justice, prejudice, and the complexity of human nature as each juror reveals their own character and biases. The lone juror’s insistence on a fair deliberation forces the others to thoroughly analyze the evidence, leading to various shifts in opinions and eventually to a unanimous decision. The play is a powerful examination of a diverse group’s navigation through prejudice and reason to find justice.

Performance dates:

Perfect for any performing group, this is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script.
