Twelve Angry Women ***** Opens November 19, 2010


The Curtain Club production stars Helen Gialedakis, Rakhee Morzaria, Colleen Sibeon, Lorraine Whaley, Hayley Fisher, Louise Howlings, Flo McLellan, Colleen Simm, Zara Stuart-Jones, Joan Shaw, Lise Boily, Kirsty Campbell, Juanita Harris, and Phyllis Anderson, all seasoned actors, many of whom have been seen in several The Curtain Club productions over the years. Director Joan Burrows has taken a very dramatic look at some very difficult issues such as the possibility of a mandatory death sentence, parenting, racial discrimination, and the need for unanimous verdicts by jurors in the American judicial system. Also of particular difficulty for a director is that fact that throughout their deliberation, not a single juror calls another by her name because the names are unknown by the jurors.
