Riggs High Presents Fall Play Next Week

Friday, September 30, 2016

The Riggs High school Drama department will present “Twelve Angry Jurors” adapted by Sherman Sergel next week. The play is based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.

Show times are Monday Oct 3rd & Tuesday the 4th at 7 PM and Thursday October 6th at 5:30 PM in Riggs Theater.  Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for students, and all Riggs High activity tickets will be honored.

Riggs High Play Instructor Hyrma Zakahi says that the play focuses on a 19-year-old boy has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father.  It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. Each juror reveals his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their own eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry people.

The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it—intense scenes that will electrify the audience and keep them on the edge of their seats—add up to a fine, mature piece of dramatic literature.
