When a man is accused of abducting half a dozen cats, it's a simple open-and-shut case, even for a jury that is filled with odd balls like a dim-witted PR guy, a bickering couple, and a man obsessed with French fries. After all, every scrap of evidence indicts the accused. And yet, Juror #8, a wannabe lawyer, believes that the "Cat Burglar" is innocent. Will he be able to sway the other jury members? Or will they side with Juror #3, the only sane man in the room? A hilarious parody of 12 Angry Men. (A full-length version of this play is also available.)

Published Reviews

"The ideal script [...] for a student production -- entertaining, ludicrous and not too taxing. A light and enjoyable theatrical treat."
