ARENA Arts presents

"Twelve Angry Jurors"

Adapted to the stage by Sherman L. Sergel
based on "Twelve Angry Men" by Reginald Rose
Directed by Simon James

 

The crime is murder. The punishment is death. A life hangs in the balance. The verdict is split. The jurors are at each others throats.

Based on the Oscar nominated film script TWELVE ANGRY MEN by Reginald Rose.  There are two film versions of this story, one with Henry Fonda as the protagonist, the other with Jack Lemon playing the lead role.

Our production is an all-female (bar one role) version of the classic jury room drama.  A young man is accused of stabbing his father to death.  There are witnesses downstairs and across the railway tracks that testify that he is guilty of this horrendous crime. 

After days in the courtroom hearing all the evidence against the accused, the jury of 12 retire to the jury room to deliberate on the case, and this is where the real drama begins.  Eleven jurors vote "guilty".  One votes "not guilty". 

What follows is a tense drama of contradictory evidence and conflicting personalities that will keep audiences guessing to the end.  Civility unravels, facts are not what they seem to be, tempers boil over and the truth gets lost in bullying and bravado.  This all adds up to a thoroughly absorbing and entertaining piece of theatre.
 
ARENA's production is transposed from 1960s America to WWII Australia.  A sumptuous, mahogany paneled jury room, overlooking scruffy tenement buildings, is the backdrop of great costumes and hair-dos of the era and the very varied characters.  Audiences will be welcomed into the Roxy Lane with some great music from the era, too!

Harbour Theatre presents

"The Kitchen Sink"

A comedy by Tom Wells
Directed by Grace Hitchin

 

This earthy, heart-warming and laugh out loud production is an irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes.

Things aren't going to plan for one family in Withernsea. Pieces are falling off Martin's milk float as quickly as he's losing customers, and something's up with Kath's kitchen sink.

Billy is pinning his hopes of a place at art college on a revealing portrait of Dolly Parton, whist Sophie's dreams of becoming a ju-jitsu teacher might be disappearing down the plug hole.

A story of the ups and downs of everyday life, Tom Wells’ hilarious and touching comedy invites you into Martin and Kath’s home in Withernsea, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, to experience the music of Dolly Parton, the smell of the oil dripping from the parts of Martin’s milk float and the sight of Kath’s desperate attempts to keep the family together and fed on her experimental cuisine.

Amid the dreaming, the dramas and the dirty dishes, something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink?

*Please note - adult themes with some strong language
