News: Cast announced for Twelve Angry Men at Richmond Theatre

A life in the balance. Twelve men, one verdict.

Richmond Theatre is delighted to announce the full cast for Bill Kenwright’s production of courtroom thriller TWELVE ANGRY MEN, which plays at the venue from 5th-10th February 2024.

A jury has murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a younf 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.

Reginald Rose’s gripping drama, which has played a record-breaking season in the West End, brings the 1957 three-time Academy Award-nominated film (regarded as one of the ‘100 Best Movies of All Time’ by Variety) to the stage in this riveting production.

TWELVE ANGRY MEN will star Jason Merrells (Casualty, Emmerdale), with Tristan Gemmill (Coronation Street, Casualty), Michael Greco (EastEnders, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes), Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier, Doctors), Gary Webster (Minder, Family Affairs) and Gray O’Brien (Coronation Street, Peak Practice).

Completing the cast are Paul Breech, Samarge Hamilton, Jeffrey Harmer, Mark Heenehan, Kenneth Jay, Paul Lavers, Owen Oldroyd and Adam Philip Bloom.

TWELVE ANGRY MEN is written by Reginald Rose, and directed by Christopher Haydon. Associate director is Tim Welton, design by Michael Pavelka, lighting design by Chris Davey and sound design by Andy Graham.
