Today, I got to see 12 Angry Jurors, a.k.a. "12 Angry Men, but NOT ALL MEN." I was glad to see it, since I'd alluded to it before but only bluffingly—I didn't know anything about it. I'm still not sure about all of it. Instead of a professional play, I saw a group of students who practice together perform it. Some of these students were better than others; some had it down, some had to peek at lines to remember them. So for some of the hesitant folks in today's performance, I'm not sure whether that was an intended quality of the character or just showed an actor keeping their place. But now I know many of the characters, and I know the storyline. Witnesses get things wrong, everybody lies, jurors storm around before the logic catches up to them. Good stuff.
