'Twelve Angry Jurors' to Debut at West Orange H.S. on Oct. 31

October 30, 2013 at 1:11 AM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - While 1950s television may not have been the techonological and visual marvel that it is today, it has undeniably been considered the breeding ground for some of the most dramatic and dynamic live television ever produced.  In 1954, Reginald Rose wrote a teleplay for the Studio One Anthology series on CBS called "Twelve Angry Men." It was rewritten for the stage in 1955, and became a popular motion picture in 1957.

The plot revolves around what 11 of 12 jurors consider to be an "open-and-shut" murder case.  What it becomes is a character study of the individuals that are called to form a cohesive group that will determine the life or death of a young man accused of murdering his father.

The West Orange High School Drama Department will perform their own version of Twelve Angry Men, renamed Twelve Angry Jurors, beginning on Thursday, Oct. 31, at the West Orange High School Auditorium, 51 Conforti Ave., at the Pleasant Valley Way entrance.
