Tempers fly high as a jury deliberates the murder trial of a 19-year-old defendant. The accused appears destined for capital punishment until one by one, each of the 12 jurors confesses the personal biases that fuel their guilty verdicts. All 12 are forced to confront their internal battles, but will it be enough to establish reasonable doubt? Join us for this gripping, penetrating, and powerful expose of the trial-by-jury system.
“After the Verdict” talk back panels will explore the play’s themes including jury deliberation, the death penalty, and racial disparities in the criminal justice system. Confirmed guests include:
Friday, March 17: Andy Ko (Partnership for Safety and Justice), Tiffany Harris (criminal defense attorney), Amanda Manjarrez (Coalition of Communities of Color)
Saturday, March 18: Iris Maria Chavez (education advocate & communications consultant), Donna Maxey (Race Talks), Antoinette Edwards (Portland Office of Youth Violence Prevention)
