WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Written 60 years ago, but still quite relevant today, Twelve Angry Men takes the audience inside the room as jurors deliberate the guilt of a teen.
In the 1957 movie, Henry Fonda stared as the one member on a jury of white men who is the holdout on the guilty vote in the case of an inner-city teenager charged with killing his father.
On stage in Wilmington starting Thursday, Aug. 3, Josh Bailey plays the dissenting juror.
"As an actor, it's very interesting to play something where you feel everybody standing up against you and saying what you believe is wrong," Bailey said. "It's definitely a powerful moment, especially when you can get other people to agree with you."
He joined us on WECT News First at Four to talk about the show.
