A predominantly female cast is putting a twist on the classic courtroom drama, 12 Angry Men as the Canadian College of Performing Arts opens their season with Twelve Angry Jurors, a reworked version of the Reginald Rose teleplay.

“I think it is very timely, to have a full cast of women, especially in a courtroom,” said third-year acting student Lara Hamburg.

Given the current climate of the #MeToo movement and its effects in powering the voices of women, Hamburg says the play’s message is especially important. “I think audiences will really be able to connect with it more.”
