Mumbai 2022: The twelve angry jurors are back to decide the fate of an 18-year-old boy. The play is presented by NCPA in collaboration with Rage Productions. The jurors have been stealing hearts with their performance since 2016 and will compel you to make a choice again on the 4th of December 2022.
An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with Rage Productions:
The play, based on a film that was adapted from Reginald Rose’s teleplay at the time, begins with an eighteen-year-old boy from a slum who is on trial for the murder of his abusive father. A jury of twelve people is locked in the deliberation room to decide the fate of the young boy. All evidence is against the boy and a guilty verdict would send him to the electric chair. But the judgement must be unanimous. Even before they begin a discussion, it is apparent that most of the jurors are certain the boy is guilty. While most jurors have already decided on the fate of the boy, one vote of not guilty opens Pandora's box and a forced deliberation begins. Slowly, but surely, each member of the jury is forced to confront the facts on hand and open his/her mind to the possibilities that exist outside them and shine a light on the kind of person he/she actually is.
The boy who is accused of murdering his own father is known to interest the audience. What locks everyone's attention is the way the accused is presented in front of a jury consisting of 12 members, the majority of whom have already assumed the boy to be guilty.
But there is no fun without a twist and this very twist is what has garnered the audience's immense love for the play. The story takes a turn when one vote of not guilty opens up Pandora's box and a forced deliberation begins. With this, each member of the jury is forced to confront the facts at hand and broaden their perspective on how there could be an underlying truth.
This courtroom drama directed by Nadir Khan is performed powerfully with the cast of Ajitesh Gupta, Devika Shahani, Dipika Roy, Nikhil Murali, Prerna Chawla, Rohit Malkani, Shivani Tanksale, Shivani Vakil, Sohrab Ardeshir, Suresh Venkat, Vivek Madan and Rajit Kapur. The play is engrossing throughout as it is based on a film that was adapted from Reginald Rose’s teleplay.
Here's your chance to know if the boy is guilty or not guilty!
