Twelve Angry Jurors (originally 12 Angry Men)* focuses on the people of a jury who must deliberate over the evidence of a young man on trial for murder, as they weigh the evidence and bring their biases into the open. When one juror acts as the holdout vote preventing a quick guilty verdict, the tempers get as hot as the temperature in the jury room as they try to convince each other of how justice is best served. Dealing with timeless themes of race, class, gender, and the justice system, it is a powerful piece just as relevant today as ever before.

*Adapted by Sherman Sergel from the Emmy Award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.

Treasurer’s Note

The Sudbury Savoyards have just finished its third year as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with its strongest financial standing ever. Our two productions this past year, Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure in July 2018 and The Yeomen of the Guard this past winter 2019, were theatrical successes as well as financial successes, with revenues covering their costs. In addition to two successful shows, we had some very generous patron donations, a handful of recitals and small performances, a Gala Fundraiser and silent auction in June, and numerous local Cultural Council grants for our Yeomen production. Finally, we must recognize the many people who donate their time, expertise, and enthusiasm as volunteers to make everything that we do possible. We thank all of the members, patrons, donors, volunteers, and the whole community for making this one of our best years yet, and we look forward to Sudbury Savoyards’ productions and events for years to come!
