Tom Conti leads the cast of Twelve Angry Men as it gets set to give its verdict across the UK. The acclaimed production is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 7th to Saturday 11th April following its record-breaking run at the Garrick Theatre in the West End.
Lauded as one of the great ‘must-see’ movies of all time, Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men originated as a television play and has been successfully adapted for film, radio and stage. The 1957 Academy Award-nominated film version starred, and was produced by, Henry Fonda.
Twelve Angry Men follows twelve jurors who have murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father. But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a dilemma for the twelve, as their prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables every which way, until the nail-biting climax.
Also featured is Denis Lill, famous for Survivors, Doctor Who, Only Fools And Horses, and Red Dwarf. Performing the rest of the jury will be Paul Beech, whose theatre credits include King Lear and A Tale of Two Cities, Alexander Forsyth, who has starred in stage productions of Porcelain and It Never Ends, Edward Halsted, who starred in Holby City and Jonathan Creek, and Gareth David-Lloyd, who is best known for his role as Ianto Jones in the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood.
Twelve Angry Men is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 7th to Saturday 11th April. Tickets are on sale now priced from £18.50 to £34.
