The Greenville High School Theatre Department is presenting its fall play later this month.
“12 Angry Jurors” by Reginald Rose, originally known as “12 Angry Men,” will be performed November 16 and 17 in the high school auditorium.
Director Scott Spencer said the play is about a young man who has been accused of murdering his father. He said there were eyewitnesses and a lot of evidence, but also reasonable doubt. He said it’s beautifully written.
