Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of one thousand pounds, and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately…the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn’t baffle the husband: He sees his hireling’s death as an opportunity to have his wife convicted for the murder of the man who tried to murder her, and that is what almost happens. Luckily, the police inspector from Scotland Yard and a young man who is in love with the wife discover the truth, and in a scene of almost unbearable suspense they trap the husband into revealing his guilt, thus freeing Margot.

Auditions for Twelve Angry Women at Greenbelt Arts Center, May 23-24

Auditions for Twelve Angry Women at Greenbelt Arts Center, May 23-24

The Rude Mechanicals in residence at the Greenbelt Arts Center announces auditions for:
Twelve Angry Women
by Reginald Rose
stage version by Sherman L. Sergel

Auditions May 23 & 24, 2022 at 8pm
Auditions and performance will be live in person

By Greenbelt Arts Center, In Person.

Callbacks will be 8-10PM Thu May 26. Actors may be cast without being called back. Auditions will consist of a monologue you may prepare or select from one of ours. Please bring proof of vaccination.

The Rude Mechanicals’ next live show at the Greenbelt Arts Center! “Twelve Angry Women,” by Reginald Rose, stage version by Sherman L. Sergel, produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois, both tells a story and examines our society. The story is straightforward: twelve strangers must vote guilty or not guilty to decide the future of a young man charged with the murder of his father. Their verdict must be unanimous. The drama is played out in a claustrophobic jury room during an unbearable hot summer day. The environment is a crucible—a vessel that purifies through fire. Each of the jurors is forced to face herself—her life experiences, prejudices, personalities, and biases. Herein lies the ever-ascending drama of the play—the conflicts of every jury member within herself and with her fellow jurors as they examine the evidence.
