THE STORY: The play concerns the deliberations of the jury of a homicide trial where a dozen "men with ties" decide the fate of a teenager accused of murdering his abusive father. At the beginning, they have a nearly unanimous decision of guilty, with a single dissenter of not guilty, who throughout the play sows a seed of reasonable doubt and eventually wins over the other jurors for a unanimous "not guilty" verdict.

Twelve Angry Men may also be performed as Twelve Angry Women. Or by using a combination of these two editions, it can be staged with a mixed cast as Twelve Angry Jurors.
