Dallas Star Patrick Duffy Leads An All-Star Cast When Twelve Angry Men Plays @ Theatre Royal Brighton Later This Month

Twelve Angry Men is headed to Theatre Royal Brighton with Dallas star Patrick Duffy among its big-name cast.

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, with  Tristan Gemmill as Juror number 3. 
Michael Greco returning as Juror number 7, Ben Nealon is Juror number 12, Gary Webster plays Juror number 6 and Gray O'Brien as Juror number 10. 

Twelve Angry Men takes to the stage at Theatre Royal Brighton from Monday 20th to Saturday 25th November 2023. Tickets are on sale at ATGTickets.com/Brighton.
