Important Info: THIS BOX OFFICE RECORD-BREAKING PLAY IS NOW IN ITS FINAL WEEKS - MUST CLOSE 14 JUNE
The classic 1957 Sidney Lumet movie that featured Henry Fonda in a starring role is one that is remembered fondly by movie lovers everywhere but what few may know is that it is based on a teleplay that screened on US television earlier in the 1950s and its subsequent stage play from 1955. Now audiences in the West End are able to witness this stage production once again as the Garrick Theatre welcomes a star cast in Twelve Angry Men.
Whereas that iconic movie featured Fonda alongside Jack Klugman and others, the Garrick play features Robert Vaughn, Tom Conti, Jeff Fahey and Nick Moran among the cast members. So as well as re-exploring a classic story it also offers the opportunity to see some high profile actors on the stage.
Twelve Angry Men focuses on the jury of murder trial. Following the court proceedings we witness as 12 jurors retire to deliberate on the case of a young boy accused of murdering his father. At first it seems as though this is going to be an easy decision to come to but thanks to the thinking of Juror 8 it is clear that there is more to it than meets the eye. Perhaps they won’t be able to make it home soon after all.
Robert Vaughn is a veteran actor whose work has spanned the stage and screen on the other side of the Atlantic. His credits include movies like The Magnificent Seven, The Bridge At Remagen, Bullitt and BASEketball, among others, as well as stage productions of The Real Inspector Hound in the US.
Meanwhile, Tom Conti is a well known actor who has appeared in a range of roles on both sides of the Atlantic in the likes of Friends and Miranda, in addition to The Dark Knight Rises, Shirley Valentine and Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell at the Garrick Theatre in 2006. He has also directed numerous productions.
Twelve Angry Men followed the long-running Rock of Ages at the Garrick Theatre when it opened at the venue on 11th November 2013 (previews from 7th November 2013). The show arrived in the West End on the back of a UK tour.
