Current Season

Providence Mainstage Season

by Ira Levin

In this well-known mystery thriller, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway hits, is struggling to overcome a “dry” spell which has resulted in a series of box office flops.  A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a remarkable script from a student which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway juggernaut.  Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer assistance to the student in exchange for co-credit.  But is that really his plan?  Suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

Twelve Angry Jurors

Book by Reginald Rose
Adapted by Sherman L. Sergel

This dramatic “twist and turn” court drama tells the story of twelve jurors charged with the unenviable task of deciding a young man’s fate. Accused of brutally murdering his father, the young man’s life hangs in the balance as a jury of his peers battle reasonable doubt, prejudice, and their own morality in a cramped, overheated deliberation room. Tempers flare as the reality of a death sentence weighs on the minds of these twelve strangers, the life or death of the accused foisted upon them. Guilty or not guilty. Life or death. Freedom or damnation. Each juror must vote. Based on Twelve Angry Men, the 1954 Emmy-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.
