Saturday night play

Last night I had the priviledge of going to see a play with a dear friend of mine. This play was well done and had a lot of good "life lessons" in it.

Twelve Angry Men told the story of 12 men who sat on a jury and who had to decide the fate of a sixteen year old boy who was alleged to have murdered his father.
This young man had a lot of strikes against him, from having a record, verbal skirmishes with his Dad, to living in a bad area

It showed how each person on the jury had their own set of preconceived notions and stereotype images and how it affected their judgement and their ability to give a fair decision.

In the end, after much in-fighting, a just decision was rendered.

I like going to plays and especially if they have life lessons woven into them.

We joined other friends for light refreshments in the gym at Phillpot Church after the play.

Congratulations to those fine actors and to Bryan Wyllie, who was the Stage Manager.
