“12 Angry Jurors”

“12 Angry Men” started as a television play in 1954, and since then, the behind-the-scenes look at a jury trying to decide the fate of an accused murderer has been re-made countless times on TV, on stage, and most famously, in the 1957 Oscar-nominated movie version starring Henry Fonda.

This weekend, the Cascades Theatrical Company​ in Bend is putting its own spin on the story, now called “12 Angry Jurors​” to reflect the inclusion of both men and women in the play, but the director also made another casting choice that adds a whole other layer of diversity to the story.
