East County’s Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble is presenting its fall main stage production of 12 Angry Jurors, directed by Salim Razawi, and produced in association with El Campanil Theatre.

Performances will be held at El Campanil Theatre, located at 602 W. 2nd Street in Antioch on Oct. 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 8 p.m, and Oct. 3 and 10 at 2 p.m.

12 Angry Jurors was adapted from a 1954 teleplay, which was later produced as a feature film in 1957 called 12 Angry Men. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and starred Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb and Jack Klugman among others. A compelling remake came out in 1997, starring Jack Lemmon, George C. Scott, Courtney B. Vance, Edward James Olmos, Hugh Cronyn, and more. The play was first staged in London, and finally came to Broadway in 2004. A more recent adaption of the play is 12 Angry Jurors, enabling theatre companies to have roles for more than one gender.
