‘12 Incompetent Jurors’ on stage at Quonset Hut July 15-17

On the heels of a recent ‘whodunnit’ murder mystery, members of Athens Community Theater will be asking a different question with their current production, “Is he/she guilty?” The audience will get to be the judge as it watches the deliberations and shenanigans of the 12 un-jury-worthy jurors who have been selected to decide the fate of an alleged catnapper.  

“12 Incompetent Jurors” by Ian McWethy is a fast-moving, character-driven comedic play that parodies the famous courtroom drama “12 Angry Men.” ACT’s production, will be staged July 15-17, at the Quonset Hut Theater, 132 N. Capital Avenue in Athens, under the direction of husband and wife team Brad and Linda Kenyon. 

Although Brad Kenyon has directed several plays at Quonset Hut, this is the Michigan directorial debut for Linda, who hadn’t sat in the director’s chair since the family moved to Athens from Indiana several years ago. She enjoys encouraging cast members to use their own creativity to differentiate their character from the rest.
