Kentwood Players is participating in the national play reading of Reginald Rose’s drama 12 Angry Men performed by 12 Impassioned Women over the weekend of April 5-8, 2019. Readings are being presented by 12,000 women across the country (at community colleges, law schools, universities, high schools, community and regional theaters, and community centers) who support the need for continuing towards gender equality and parity by using their voices to tell a story, make others think, and motivate others to action. This classic play speaks to the power one person can have when they speak with conviction in our judicial system.
After the reading, the League of Women Voters will host voter registration, encouraging cast and audience members to engage their own community to increase voter registration and turnout. There is no admission charge for the play reading; donations gratefully accepted.
