12 Angry Men and Block 4

Block 4 BAC English Literature students recently went to London to see a production of Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men at the Garrick Theatre; a superb production of the well-known, taut  jury room drama first seen in the Henry Fonda film of 1957 exploring not only a single case but the whole process of justice. Milo Howes said: “The visit was due to us studying the play in class and the production was a new way of helping us understand and connect with the plot. The performance was fantastic and many, if not all, the students benefited from it greatly; it was a brimming success which brought back many smiles on the coach. Many thanks to all the teachers who took us.”
