12 Angry Men

I recently collaborated again with Lamplighter and Madhatters community theatres to produce the poster for their production of 12 Angry Men. The play is a brilliant character study set in the closed jury room of a murder trial. Though the play is half a century old, the language and themes are as timely today as they were then.
