“Twelve Angry Men”: change of venue for second audition

The audition for Twelve Angry Men scheduled for 12 October will now take place in the European Court of Human Rights and not the usual rehearsal area in the Palais de l’Europe.

New venue: the smaller hearing room in the European Court of Human Rights, known as “the small drum”. Date unchanged: Wednesday 12 October at 18.30. Potential actors, both male and female, are invited to attend.

Members and friends interested in being involved in any capacity will be most welcome but the usual security requirements concerning access to the building apply. Please contact Tagora at least two days before the event if you need us to make arrangements.

Twelve Angry Men, written by Reginald Rose, is a compelling courtroom drama which focuses on a jury’s deliberations in a first degree murder trial. A 19-year-old youth is accused of stabbing his father to death. A guilty verdict means the death sentence. A jury of twelve men must decide his fate …

Twelve Angry Men is a play written in 1954 for television. In 1957 it was made into a very successful film starring Henry Fonda.

The Theatre Club of the European Court of Human Rights and Tagora, in a joint production,  are planning to stage this play at the Court in mid-June 2017 (dates to be confirmed). Three performances are planned.
