Four actors sit on a darkened stage, awaiting the arrival of the stage manager who has called them together. Each the definition of "typecast," they have absorbed most of what they are from what they pretend to be on the stage. As they wait, the stage lights come up—but still no one appears to tell them what they are to do. The play they begin to improvise is a mixture of truth, fantasy and well-rehearsed situations.  Out of it, in subtle progression, comes a deepening awareness of the real people behind the theatrical facades. This play, conceived in the "Pirandello mode," brings a fresh approach to a timeless theme — what should be the proper ratio of truth vs. illusion in the balanced life?

Tad Mosel (May 1, 1922 – August 24, 2008) was an American playwright and one of the leading dramatists of the hour-long teleplay genre for live television during the 1950s. He received the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his play All the Way Home.

Where do the secrets of the mind become reality?

Edward Albee's masterpiece is alive again in this rendition of one of the most complicated love stories of all time.  After a night of drinking and socializing, George and Martha make it home to continue the party with the new hot couple that they just met.  The after party turns from a cordial invitation to a hostile evening as George introduces dangerous mind games, and Martha reveals deep dark secrets that have kept the couple together for so many years.  The night meant for fun and games turns into an exorcism of secrets that confuses both couples from being able to tell the truth from illusion.

One man refuses to succumb to prejudice so that twelve jurors can prevent a miscarriage of justice.

A 16-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. Things become personal with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the ladies and gentlemen become Twelve Angry Jurors.

Reginald Rose, an American film and television writer, rose to prominence with his slice of life dramas focusing on controversial and political issues. His realistic approach became a huge influence on the dramas of the 1950s. His breakout work, Twelve Angry Men, premiered as a teleplay in 1954 and has been adapted for stage and screen.
