Coventry will welcome an all- star cast to the stage for its latest courtroom drama, Twelve Angry Men.

The Belgrade Theatre will raise the curtain on Olivier Award Winners and Golden Globe nominees as it welcomed the touring drama.

After a record-breaking run in the West End, the popular play will run in Coventry from February 9 to 13 and see Tom Conti take on the role of Juror Number 8.

He will be joined on stage by Andrew Lancel- best known for playing villainous businessman Frank Foster in Coronation Street- Robert Duncan Andrew Frame, David Calvitto, Mark Carter, Sean Power and Jon Carver.

Lauded as one of the great ‘must-see’ movies of all time, Reginald Rose’s story originated as a television play and has since been successfully adapted for film, radio and stage.

It follows the deliberations of 12 jurors who have a murder on their minds and a life in their hands as they decide the fate of a young delinquent accused of killing his father. 

But what appears to be an open and shut case soon becomes a dilemma as their prejudices about the accused, the trial and each other turn the tables every which way..
