Wanderlust Theatre is bringing Reginald Rose’s classic Twelve Angry Men to Theatre 810. The play centers around a 1957 murder trial and the 12 disgruntled jurors who hold the fate of one young man in their hands. As they reach a seemingly unanimous decision of “guilty,” one lone juror decides the evidence presented does not prove the man’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Showtimes for Twelve Angry Men are June 7-8 at 7:30 p.m. at Theatre 810, located at 810 Jefferson St., in Downtown Lafayette. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling (337) 484-0172 or visiting Wanderlust12AngryMen.eventbrite.com
