12 Angry Men
by Reginald Rose

VCE English Units 3 & 4, Text list 1
Area of study 1: Reading and Responding

Presented by Eagle's Nest Theatre

Facilitated by one of our Artistic directors, five professional actors and some of your students present keys scenes featuring Jurors 3, 4, 8, 9, and 10.

An initial reading of each scene focuses on analysing the play’s context, the construction of characters, and the themes of prejudice and justice in 1950’s America.

In a second reading students explore, and learn to make arguments about, alternative interpretations of the scenes with a focus on the judicial process and the power of language.

The workshop aims to:
• Analyse the ways in which authors construct meaning
• Explore the social historical context of the play
• Compare various interpretations grounded in textual
evidence
• Construct arguments based on response and analysis
