    University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Theatre presents "12 Angry Jurors"

    7:30pm

    Weidner Center for the Performing Arts

    Twelve jurors must decide the fate of a young man accused of murder. It seems like an "open and shut" case until one juror stands up for the American judicial system and insists that personal emotions and fear must not influence this life-or-death decision. Will he succeed, or is the evidence against the accused-and the jury's bias against him-too strong? This play, one of the most often-produced in North America in its various versions, is as relevant today as it was nearly 50 years ago.

    University Theatre, Theatre Hall

    A powerful Senator wants to "re-purpose" a section of the National Forest as a building site for a new coal power plant, and environmental activists want to stop him.

Nothing is quite as simple as it seems in this surreal and serious comedy about choices, love, integrity, politics, myth, inspiration, sex, global warming, marriage, work, forests, art, and the environment.
