About the show

The AlphaNYC Theater Company presents a female version of the classic tale about 12 jurors deliberating a case that turns out to be more complicated than it at first seems. More…

A 19-year-old boy has just been tried for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak deliberation room. But then one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. The proceedings become personal, with each juror revealing her own character as the various testimonies are reexamined and the murder is reenacted. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry women.
