About the play:
Twelve jurors gather to decide the fate of a young girl. Did she stab her uncle in cold blood? Eleven jurors say yes; one, a student actress, says no. The jurors agree to her request to re-enact the crime right there. Props are brought in - including the actual murder weapon. The actress becomes the accused, the foreman takes the part of the murdered man. As the re-enactment proceeds, the verdict, the solution, and the climax all come together with an unexpected twist.
Foreman - dignified, gray-haired man, personable, calms situation
Man with glasses - jokester, sarcastic
First Old Lady - quick wit, likes to knit
Second Old Lady - sarcastic funny , likes knitting
Actress - lively, has mood swings, temperamental, interesting
Angry Man - known by his perpetual scowl, but sometimes shows a friendly side
Blonde Girl - vacuous, gum-chewing creature, doesn't really understand what is going on
Brunette Girl - dark brooding sort, deep into Astrology
Shy Girl - plain, retiring, almost invisible on the stage
Society Woman - haughty, obviously wealthy matron
Middle-aged Man - small, undistinguished, waiter
Young Man - bright, good-looking
