WELCOME to Chestnut Street Playhouse!

The Board of Directors is currently working to renew and revamp our mission initiatives to create the spirit of community that we want Chestnut Street Playhouse to exhibit. This effort includes creating space and opportunity for more diversity, equity and inclusion in our programming, on our Board, in our audience, on our stage, within our creative teams and for our volunteers. There will be much more to come in the months - and years - ahead, and we look forward to the journey to create the community we dream of being.

 Scales of Justice

A blistering character study and an examination of the American melting pot, and the judicial system that keeps it in check.  Twelve Angry (Jurors) holds at its core a deeply patriotic faith in the U.S. legal system.  The play centers on juror Eight, who is at first the sole holdout in an 11-1 guilty vote.  Eight sets her sights not on proving the other jurors wrong but rather on getting them to look at the situation in a clear-eyed way not affected by their personal prejudices or biases.

Playwright Reginald Rose deliberately and carefully peels away the layers of artifice from the jurors and allows a fuller picture of them - and of America, at its best and worst - to form.  After the critically acclaimed teleplay aired in 1954, the landmark American drama went on to become a cinematic masterpiece in 1957 starring Henry Fonda, for which Rose wrote the adaptation.  More recently, Twelve Angry Men had a successful and award winning run on Broadway
