New York City
A nineteen year old has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. The Jury convenes and it looks as though it is an open and shut case that calls for a guilty verdict. But when one juror attempts to take a closer look at the facts of the case, he spins a yarn of examination that goes beyond the case, revealing something about each of the juror’s own character. Tempers flare, tensions rise and a heated debate replaces an open and shut case with doubts that challenge the very fabric of our culture and society. This screen and stage classic was also Winner of the 2005 Tony Award® for Best Revival of a Play.
