A SLICK edge-of-your-seat thriller comes to the Everyman theatre in Cheltenham this week
Twelve Angry Men - a Bill Kenwright Ltd production - written by Reginald Rose is a classy production.
Set in a stark jurors' room in 1950s America, this brilliant piece of theatre runs smoothly and with a class cast including Dallas star Patrick Duffy as one of the angry 12.
The show began with a touching tribute to Bill Kenwright by Everyman chief executive Mark Goucher who paid a personal tribute to Bill Kenwright who sadly passed away in October.. 
This stage adaptation of the classic title stars Patrick Duffy (Man from Atlantis, Dallas), Tristan Gemmill (Coronation Street, Casualty), Michael Greco (EastEnders), Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier), Gary Webster (Minder, Family Affairs) and Gray O’Brien (Coronation Street, Peak Practice). 
Probably best remembered as the 1957 three-time Academy Award nominated movie starring Henry Fonda as the juror who fights for justice, Twelve Angry Men has recently completed two west end seasons at London’s Garrick Theatre starring Martin Shaw followed by Tom Conti. Considered one of the great ‘must-sees’ of all time, this gripping knife-edge courtroom thriller follows a jury who have murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father. 
But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a huge dilemma, as prejudices and preconceived ideas about the accused, the trial, and each other turn the tables every which way, until the nail-biting climax… 
Patrick Duffy stars as Juror number 8 - the role that Henry Fonda made famous in the 1957 film. Patrick has captivated audiences on televisions for more than 45 years, from playing Bobby Ewing in Dallas over 14 seasons, the ABC sitcom Step by Step as Frank Lambert. Written by Reginald Rose Directed by Christopher Haydon Associate Director Tim Welton Design by Michael Pavelka Lighting Design by Chris Davey Sound design by Andy Graham.
