Unit Set/Multiple Settings

A prominent black man is arrested for buying crack. His lawyer says he was framed, set up by a racist white cop. It is left to a jury of six (as is the case in misdemeanors and many civil cases in New York State), a racially mixed group of five women and one man, to decide who is telling the truth. This they do over three brutal, often explosive days of harrowing deliberation, as we take a peek behind the one door that will always remain closed to us—the door to the jury room.
"Sutton…is capable of focusing a viewer's attention in ways news cannot. Rather than pouring over the facts of the case, Sutton concentrates on the way the facts are interpreted by the members of the jury—how they are colored, as it were, by each individual's life experiences…The play also demonstrates that the notion of a jury of one's peers is not as simple as it sounds. In a society divided by race and class, one's peers can be difficult, if not impossible, to identify." —Variety.
