I’d last seen 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose as the well-known Henry Fonda film in my early teens and wondered how well the 1950s drama would come across on the stage today. I needn’t have worried. I was totally enthralled by the current West End production with a cast of amazing actors including Martin Shaw and Robert Vaughn and directed by Christopher Haydon. Michael Pavelka’s revolving stage is a stroke of genius which not only allows you to enjoy all the rich performances but also evokes the impression of time moving slowly.
We thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this brilliant show.
