The Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) Paul V. Hamilton School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and The LMU Players will stage a dinner theater production of Twelve Angry Jurors, Oct. 26-28.

Featuring a cast of LMU students and community members, the production will be staged at the LMU Convention Center in Cumberland Gap. Friday and Saturday shows will featured a catered dinner at 6:30 p.m., with the show to follow at 7:30 p.m. Non-dinner tickets are also available. The Thursday performance starts at 7:30 p.m. with no dinner.

Assistant Professor of Theatre Joe Gill directs the production of Sherman L. Sergel’s adaptation of Reginald Rose’s classic play Twelve Angry Men, which was originally scripted as a teleplay for broadcast. The drama depicts a jury considering the fate of a young man on trial for murdering his father. At the start, the jury has a nearly unanimous decision of guilty, with a single dissenter, who throughout the play sows a seed of reasonable doubt. The cast includes LMU students as well as community members.
