In the timely, timeless and taut classic “Twelve Angry Men” by Reginald Rose, 12 jurors deliberate the fate of a teenager accused of killing his father. Only Juror #8 is uncertain of the young man’s guilt. As he compels the others to carefully examine the evidence, the prejudices and social attitudes of each man are revealed – as are the strengths and flaws of the American justice system. The Young Executive Program, offered during Palm Beach Dramaworks’ production of “Twelve Angry Men,” will focus on the pivotal component of group dynamics and how groups reach consensus in their decision-making, so well demonstrated in this tale. This lecture will be hosted by Palm Beach Dramaworks’ Education Department and facilitated in conjunction with a leading Florida university business school dean.
