Solon High School presents Twelve Angry Men for fall play November 19-22
Thursday, November 12, 2015

Solon High School will stage four performances of the classic Twelve Angry Men for the fall play November 19-22.

The production is set just after the closing arguments in a murder trial and the 12 jury members must deliberate on the verdict, with a potential death sentence looming if the verdict is “guilty.” As the men and women on the jury attempt to reach consensus while sequestered in the jury room, one juror casts doubt on significant elements of the case. With a boy’s fate at stake, interpersonal issues and conflict arise, potentially derailing the deliberation.

Show times for the production on the Solon High School auditorium stage are:
• Thursday, November 19 at 7 p.m.
• Friday, November 20 at 7 p.m. SOLD OUT
• Saturday, November 21 at 7 p.m.
• Sunday, November 22 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and senior citizens. Solon senior citizens are admitted free with proof of residency.
