Bill Kenwright presents the West End production of Twelve Angry Men starring Martin Shaw, Jeff Fahey, Nick Moran and Robert Vaughn, at the Garrick Theatre from Thursday 7th November.
Written by Reginald Rose, this new production directed by Christopher Haydon pays tribute to the Academy Award nominated 1957 film which was produced by and starred Henry Fonda. Heralded as one of the great ‘must-see’ movies of all time, Twelve Angry Men began as a television play and with some considerable success has been adapted for film, radio and stage.
Martin Shaw’s most recent West End performance was in the The Country Girl and A Man for All Seasons. On television Shaw is popular for starring in the multi-award-winning BBC drama Judge John Deed and also Inspector George Gently. Shaw ensured his prominence as a popular British television actor with his role in The Professionals. Martin Shaw will star as Juror #8, the role superbly played by Henry Fonda.

His television credits include The Man from U.N.C.L.E that won a Golden Globe for the most popular television show in the world, The Protectors, 80s hit The A-Team and more recently as ‘Albert Stoller’ in BBC’s Hustle and in a guest role on Coronation Street. Robert Vaughn will star as Juror #10, Ed Begley’s role in the original film

Jeff Fahey will star as Juror #3, the role originated by screen legend Lee J. Cobb.

Moran has appeared in many films and TV programs including New Blood with John Hurt, ITV’s Mr Selfridge and The Musketeer. Nick Moran will star as Juror #7, the role that Jack Warden originally played.
Twelve jurors have murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they adjudicate on the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father. But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a quandary for the twelve, as their prejudices and preconceptions about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables every which way, until the suspenseful climax.
