DOUZE HOMMES EN COLERE
12 men, during the deliberation of a trial, have the responsibility to judge a young man
accused of parricide. If for 11 of them his guilt is obvious, a juror will raise doubts.
However, unanimity is required to pronounce a verdict. A life is in their hands. It is the
acquittal or the electric chair.There is a palpable tension in a judicial drama in which the
intelligence, humanity and perseverance of one man will undermine the certainties and
prejudices of the 11 other jurors, each inhabited and influenced by his personal history.
Beyond the issue of the trial, this eminently modern play questions how justice is done,
showing how much the ingrained prejudices and intolerance of some people
can decide the life of a man.
The delirious day of Bertrand Barnier, rich businessman struggling with an avalanche of
situations more unexpected than the others. Between the impromptu bursting of one of
his modest employees who has teeth scratching the floor and wants to marry his
daughter, this same pregnant girl not of him, but the driver he just dismissed, his wife
that he can not stand, a physio very down to earth, and ... a suitcase that never contains
what he wants, it's a nightmare waking up where we bounce from extravagant surprises
into theatrics totally crazy.
