This Broadway success has starred many distinguished actresses and is always successful in amateur productions. In a small town, a jury is selected and a murder trial is held. The dramatic proceedings are amusingly interrupted from time to time by Mrs. Crane, an eccentric juror. When the jurors retire to deliberate, the first ballot is eleven for "Guilty" and one "Not guilty." Mrs. Crane has her own theories and she will not give in; she knows that capitulation means sending an innocent woman to her death. Two days (and two acts) pass in the jury room as Mrs. Crane has uses unorthodox means to change minds.
