TWELVE ANGRY MEN get set to give their verdict at the Theatre Royal Glasgow from Monday 22 until Saturday 27 June 2015. Seven of the West End cast have re-joined the acclaimed production following its record-
breaking run at London’s Garrick Theatre.

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...

Olivier Award winner, Tony Award winner and Oscar nominee TOM CONTI returns as juror number 8, the role made famous by Henry Fonda. Tom is one of the most respected and celebrated actors of his generation - unforgettable as the leading man in hit films such as Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and Shirley Valentine

He will be joined by new jury member ANDREW LANCEL, best known for playing the villainous businessman Frank Foster in Coronation Street

And taking their places on the jury once more are ROBERT DUNCAN, best known for his role as the as jargon-spouting chief executive Gus Hedges in Drop The Dead Donkey, ANDREW FRAME, who starred as P.C Hargreaves in EastEnders, DAVID CALVITTO, whose many theatre credits include These Shining Lives and The Odd Couple, MARK CARTER, whose TV credits include Hollyoaks, Utopia and The Knock and SEAN POWER, who starred in ITV’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Fright Night 2. JON CARVER, who has had a recurring role in Doctors, returns to play The Guard.

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. This production is directed by Christopher Haydon, Artistic Director of The Gate Theatre, Notting Hill.
