This year, sophomores performed Twelve Angry Men on February 6, 2014 as a part of their Greek Tragedy block. This well-known drama originated as a television production in the 1950s, was well received as a film with Henry Fonda in 1957, and has gone on to be produced numerous times in the last 60 years. Its exploration of consensus building, how arguments are formed, and facts versus opinion (each with their own power to sway) made it a powerful learning experience for the students.
