Twelve Angry Jurors Dress Rehearsal
Twelve Angry Jurors Dress Rehearsal at Chiang Mai International School CMIS. Being performed at the school auditorium 23 – 25 March at 5pm each evening. This is the final play with Director Stephan Turner, who has consistently directed some great school plays, this will not disappoint!. Children 100thb / adults 200thb tickets available in the main office and at the door.
On a hot summer day after a long trial, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of committing a heinous crime. The jury votes 11-1 that the man is guilty of the crime, but laws in the United States require a unanimous vote by all 12 jurors in order to pass judgment. Tempers flare as the eleven jurors try their best to convince the one dissenter to come around to their side. As the evidence is re-examined, however, new uncertainties come to light, forcing everyone to truly question if there is in fact some measure of “reasonable doubt”. Twelve Angry Jurors is a heightened courtroom thriller that puts you on the edge of your seat while powerfully exploring what it means to live in a democracy.
