LETTER FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

 ROBERT HUPP. PHOTO: BRENNA MERRITT.

DEAR FRIENDS, Welcome to the official opening of our 47th season, and welcome to Twelve Angry Men. We’re very glad you’re here. We offer a special thank you to our subscribers who’ve made the choice to join us for a season of entertaining and adventurous work. Twelve Angry Men premiered as a teleplay in 1954. The 1957 film version, starring Henry Fonda, is a who’s who of memorable mid-century character actors. The camera captures the subtlety in every bead of sweat and the subtext in every knowing glance. It’s a vibrant testimony to the craftsmanship of a bygone era. But on closer examination, Twelve Angry Men is much more than a relic.

hands. Taken together, Thoughts of a Colored Man and Twelve Angry Men force us to confront how much some things haven’t changed. Couldn’t any of the characters in Thoughts of a Colored Man be the nameless man on trial in Twelve Angry Men? From the shadowy recesses of the internet to the highest seats of our federal government, we read and hear the language of angry white men today railing against a changing world that they find terrifying and incomprehensible. Twelve Angry Men shows us how one reasoned voice can triumph over a cacophony of hate and prejudice. Thoughts of a Colored Man reminds us how much work remains to be done to truly hear the voices of our world.

Associate artistic director Kyle Bass and I selected Twelve Angry Men to be part of our season for several reasons: it’s a wellcrafted, captivating story that unfolds in real time as a dozen strangers clash over a young man’s fate. We can’t look away as gripping, tour de force performances drive the story forward. Significantly, the themes that emerge in Twelve Angry Men, although crafted over 60 years ago, are prescient and powerfully, painfully relevant. Is justice truly blind? Or blind just for some? The voice of the young man at the center of this story is notably silent. Who speaks for those who can’t speak for themselves? Whose truth carries the day?

This production of Twelve Angry Men, like recent productions of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and A Raisin in the Sun, is co-produced with our colleagues at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. This artistic partnership elevates the work of both organizations. It takes a village to create good theatre. Sometimes it takes two villages.

The male characters in Twelve Angry Men, and the values they embody, live in contrast to the seven men many of you met in Thoughts of a Colored Man. The adjacency is dramaturgically intentional. Twelve Angry Men has been subjected to many updates and modernizations, but we thought the play spoke most clearly in its original structure: a room full of white men holding the life of a nameless young man, presumably a young man of color, in their

All the best,

T W E LV E ANG RY ME N

DIRECTOR'S NOTE MORE THAN 60 YEARS after its early versions (first as a one-hour television movie, then as a Hollywood film and Broadway play), Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men continues to make its case for relevance because it is at once simple and straight-forward while also complex and highstakes. In contemporary popular culture, we see endless stories about the justice system but almost exclusively through the lenses of lawyers and judges. I’m interested in the ways that twelve citizens who were previously unknown to one another are expected to work through their biases and heated disagreements and come to a unanimous decision about a murder based on the facts available to them. Of course, it turns out “facts” may be

22

subjective, which is one of the many layers of misunderstandings explored in the play. But the idea that twelve citizens (angry or not) can put aside differences so that they might fulfill their civic duty — that is democracy at its most idealistic and personal. It’s also a profound reminder about ways that the American experiment is flawed, rigorous, and steeped in responsibility. Empathetically, the play offers us an opportunity to experience the messy process of being on a jury, which can arguably also be a microcosm of a community (or country) in deep disagreement about… everything. The exploration of point of view is one of the things that draws me to this play. There are twelve points of view and they


 DIRECTOR JAMES STILL.

are mostly at odds with one another. Alliances shift, votes are changed, and maybe even some minds are changed in the process. In my collaboration with the design team I wanted to find a way to feature point of view as both metaphor and function. That will hopefully make more sense after you’ve seen our production and experienced how point of view can also change visually from wherever you’re sitting in the theater.

“The idea that twelve citizens (angry or not) can put aside differences so that they might fulfill their civic duty – that is democracy at its most idealistic and personal.”

“The title of the play isn’t “Twelve Anguished Men” or “Twelve Irritated Men” or even “Twelve Vengeful Men.” So what are these twelve jurors angry about? And does “angry” mean the same thing in 2019 as it did in 1957?.” Something else that I’m thinking about as director of this play is the word “angry.” The title of the play isn’t “Twelve Anguished Men” or “Twelve Irritated Men” or even “Twelve Vengeful Men.” So what are these twelve jurors angry about? And does “angry” mean the same thing in 2019 as it did in 1957? Perhaps the feeling is the same, but the many ways we talk about it now, the range of ways anger is expressed — that feels different. The anger of 1957 seems less direct but strangely more obvious. There is a kind of code to some of the anger explored and expressed in the play. This is one of the ways that makes the play firmly of its time, of its period. Looking at this play in 2019, there’s opportunity for us to experience the many ways class and race can so easily divide a group of people. The conversations we have today may be different in

terms of the language we use and a growing consciousness about the legacy of injustice — but there are versions of the play’s many heated conversations still happening today, every day. There have been essays and articles written (even by fans of the play and movie) that the jury in Twelve Angry Men got it wrong. That’s a conversation that interests me too. But in the end I find myself most satisfied by watching how the play examines process rather than outcome. The ending, when it comes, comes quickly. The twelve jurors leave, their civic duty completed. They leave never knowing each other’s names. But in some ways these jurors might profoundly know more about one another than some of the people they call friends. –James Still

T WE LV E ANG RY MEN

SCENIC AND COSTUME DESIGN The design for Twelve Angry Men started with a basic question: what do we want to see the most in this play? It is clearly the story that unfolds around the table and the exchanges among the 12 different characters. We want to look at the discussion and the clashes from different perspectives and give every character an opportunity to be shown and heard from every angle, up close. I started with the table, then built around that the world of the jury room inside the courthouse in downtown Manhattan. The clothes came naturally af-

ter studying the characters. These 12 men come from different paths of life. We never learn their names. But the play provides me with a full story for each man, their daily lives and the choices they make. What surprises me most is that I understand even the most biased characters in the play. It is

25

an amazing opportunity to create both scenery and costumes for this American classic. I hope the designs elevate the story as much as the play inspires me. –Junghyun Georgia Lee. ď Ž PRELIMINARY SKETCHES BY SCENIC AND COSTUME DESIGNER JUNGHYUN GEORGIA LEE.

WHAT A SETTING FOR A DRAMA A YEAR AFTER SHE WAS appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice Sonia M. Sotomayor accepted an invitation to select a film for screening at the Fordham Law Film Festival. She chose Sidney Lumet’s 1957 version of Twelve Angry Men. Speaking to the assembled crowd that evening in October of 2010, Justice Sotomayor explained her decision. When she was about to start her undergraduate work at Princeton University, her future husband took her to see the film. A career in law certainly was a possibility, and the film, she explained to the audience, “sold me that I was on the right path.” In particular, Justice Sotomayor found inspiration

26

in the speech by Juror 11, a naturalized American citizen with a noticeable accent who has come to revere the jury system of his adopted country: “This, I have always thought, is a remarkable thing about democracy. That we are, uh, what is the word? Notified. That we are notified by mail to come down to this place and decide on the guilt or innocence of a man we have never heard of before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. This is one of the reasons we are strong. We should not make it a personal thing.” “This movie continued to ring the chords within me,” Justice Sotomayor explained, however “far from reality” its depiction of jury deliberations veered. When she was a lower court judge,


she added, she would sometimes use the film to instruct jurors on what not to do. Reginald Rose originally wrote Twelve Angry Men in 1954 as a teleplay for the CBS series Studio One (1948 – 1958), a weekly drama performed live at a time when live television was common. Other comparable programs of the day included Robert Montgomery Presents, Goodyear Television Playhouse, Philco Theatre, and Kraft Television Theatre. Studio One especially earned a reputation

“While serving on a manslaughter trial, Rose and his fellow jurors became embroiled in a ‘furious, eight hour argument in the jury room.’ Rose’s takeaway: ‘Wow, what a setting for a drama.’”  SCENE FROM THE 1957 FILM TWELVE ANGRY MEN.

for producing dramas that explored–sometimes daringly–contemporary social issues. Another Rose script, Thunder on Sycamore Street (also 1954), about racial division and hatred, was altered to mollify angered Southern station owners. In light of Justice Sotomayor’s reservations about the accuracy of Rose’s jury deliberation, it may come as a surprise that the playwright took inspiration from personal experience as a juror. While serving on a manslaughter trial, Rose and his fellow jurors became embroiled in a “furious, eight hour argument in the jury room.” Rose’s takeaway: “Wow, what a setting for a drama.” Rose admitted that the specifics of Twelve Angry Men

bore little resemblance to the case on which he served. One important similarity stands out, though. Of the pool of potential jurors called to court with Rose, 98% were white men. Subsequent versions of Twelve Angry Men–Twelve Angry Women, Twelve Angry Jurors–have expanded the possibilities of the stage jury’s composition, but in the mid-1950s, chances of having a woman or a person of color selected for trial was very slim. Following his stint on Studio One, Rose created the courtroom series The Defenders, featuring E. G. Marshall (Juror Four in the 1957 film) and Robert Reed as father and son attorneys. Lasting four years on-air, the show became a proto-type for the multitude of lawyer series to 28

follow. Like Studio One, the show fearlessly addressed controversy tackling such subjects as abortion, nuclear proliferation, the death penalty, pedophilia, vigilantism, even LSD. Eschewing the feel good “justice is served” simplicity of many of its contemporaries, The Defenders evoked a judicial system in which “lawyers often don’t know or even need to know whether their clients are guilty; trials often fail to get anywhere close to the actual truths of a crime,” as Stephen Bowie notes in his Classic TV History Blog. Victories, when they came, could be Pyrrhic: a mobster or neo-Nazi released on a legal technicality. The show demanded much of its viewers and Rose refused to dumb down its con-


tent. Bowie further notes, “The Defenders insisted that the audience respond to the material intellectually as well as emotionally, and it confounded traditional, unquestioning identification with a show’s protagonists to a greater extent than anything else on television prior to the antihero cycle of The Sopranos, The Shield, Mad Men, et cetera, forty years later.” Justice Sotomayor is indeed correct. Twelve Angry Men is not an accurate portrayal of democracy or justice in action. It is, to quote its author, “a setting for a drama,” and therein it succeeds–beautifully. The often cranky but always insightful playwright David Mamet situates Twelve

Angry Men in a sub-genre he calls gang dramas. “In the gang drama the protagonist or hero is split into many parts, each part (or character) standing for a different aspect of the hero’s consciousness,” Mamet writes in an introduction to the Penguin Classics edition of the play. He continues: “In the bad version of this gang drama the audience is given the gift of a predictable ending: ‘Black people are people too,’ ‘Gay people are people too,’ ‘HIV-positive people are people too.’ This foreseeable, universally accepted message is a sop to the self-esteem of the audience, which has been deprived of the experience of revelation. Self-congratulation sends the audience 29

out into the night in a state of euphoria that will not last past the end of the block. “But the good drama (e.g., Twelve Angry Men) leaves the issue in doubt. It enmeshes the audience in the problems of the protagonist so that they may consider the arguments, now one, now the other, until, when hope is gone, persistence (of the author and of his or her creations) brings revelation, and the audience may leave the play surprised by the discovery of the possibility of peace.” –Joseph Whelan  THE CAST OF

MUSIC BY ALAN MENKEN | LYRICS BY HOWARD ASHMAN AND TIM RICE | BOOK BY LINDA WOOLVERTON | DIRECTED BY DONNA DRAKE | CHOREOGRAPHY BY ANTHONY SALATINO | MUSICAL DIRECTION BY BRIAN CIMMET | FLYING EFFECTS BY ZFX INC. | CO-PRODUCED WITH THE SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF DRAMA | NOVEMBER 22 – JANUARY 5 | OPENING NIGHT: NOVEMBER 29

BY SARAH DELAPPE | DIRECTED BY MELISSA RAIN ANDERSON | CO-PRODUCED WITH THE SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF DRAMA | PERFORMED IN THE STORCH THEATRE | JANUARY 22 – FEBRUARY 16 OPENING NIGHT: JANUARY 24

Enter a world you think you may know. The Wolves are a girls’ soccer team. The nine players are 16 and 17 years old. Over a series of wintry Saturdays on an AstroTurf indoor soccer field somewhere in suburban America, they perform their ritual pre-game warm-up. Between stretches and pep talks, cajoling and consoling, jokes and jibes, an eye-opening and sympathetic portrait of nine young women emerges, revealing their complexities and confusions as they grapple with issues large and small, near at hand and far away. Through precisely orchestrated cross talk, snappy overlapping dialogue, and some pretty nifty footwork, playwright Sarah DeLappe celebrates these young women as independent individuals: athletes, scholars, daughters, students, and friends. “The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play,” wrote The New York Times.

Be our guest for family theatre at its very best. Spectacular costumes and fantastic sets combine with beloved songs in this classic story about finding the magic in love. A wicked curse has transformed a young prince into a ghastly Beast. To break the power of this spell and return to his former self, the Beast must learn how to love and be loved. His fate is in the hands of a young woman, Belle, who must guide and teach him before he is lost forever. A tale as old as time to celebrate the holiday season.

THE CRUCIBLE

ROMEO AND JULIET

BY ARTHUR MILLER | DIRECTED BY GERARDINE CLARK | NOVEMBER 8 - 17 | OPENING NIGHT: NOVEMBER 9

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE | DIRECTED BY THOM MILLER | PERFORMED IN THE ARCHBOLD THEATRE | FEBRUARY 14 - 22 | OPENING NIGHT: FEBRUARY 15

Having had personal experience with the House Committee on Un-American Activities in the 1950s, Arthur Miller penned The Crucible, a drama born of hysteria and fear. Set in 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts Bay Colony, amid a whirl of reckless accusations of witchcraft, Miller’s play cuts right to the heart of paranoia’s poisonous power and serves as a potent reminder that irrational and unfounded fear of the “other” knows no boundary or time. One of the great American plays of the last century.

A grudge so ancient that its origins are never revealed brings tragedy to two families and untimely death to two young lovers. Four hundred years ago Shakespeare understood how intolerance begets violence and violence victimizes an entire society: See what a scourge is laid upon your hate . . . All are punish’d. He also understood that the deepest human hope lies in the unmatched beauty contained in our capacity to love.
