Great Neck North High School Junior Players will present Twelve Angry Jurors, a courtroom drama written by Reginald Rose that was originally named Twelve Angry Men.

Performances will be on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Nov. 2, 3, and 4, all at 7:30 p.m., in the school’s auditorium, 35 Polo Road. The 2 p.m. Saturday performance that appears on the district calendar has been cancelled.

The jury of Twelve Angry Jurors must decide the innocence or guilt of a young man who has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. A guilty verdict would mean an automatic death sentence.

What begins as a foregone conclusion becomes clouded by the juror’s personalities, prejudices, and preconceptions. One lone juror attempts to convince the other jurors that the youth may not be “guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Play direction is by Ilana Meredith Schikler. For ticket information, call (516) 441-4743, or contact Ms. Schikler at [email protected]
