CHARACTERS:
(All Jurors can be of any age or ethnicity, and non-binary actors are encouraged to audition as these roles are open to all genders, binary and otherwise.)

JUROR 1- A small, petty person who is impressed with the authority they have and handles themself quite formally. Not overly bright, but persistent.

JUROR 2- A meek, hesitant person who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of their own. Easily swayed and usually adopt the opinion of the last person to whom they have spoken.

JUROR 3- A very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated person within who can be detected with a streak of sadism. They are a humorless person who is intolerant of opinions other than their own and accustomed to forcing their wishes and views upon others.

JUROR 4- Seems to be a person of wealth and position. They are a practiced speaker who presents themself well at all times. They seem to feel a bit above the rest of the jurors. Their only concern is with the facts in this case, and they are appalled at the behavior of the others.

JUROR 5- A naive, very frightened young person who takes their obligations in this case very seriously but, who finds it difficult to speak up when their elders have the floor.

JUROR 6- An honest but dull-witted person who comes upon their decisions slowly and carefully. A person who finds it difficult to create positive opinions, but who must listen to and digest and accept those opinions offered by others, which appeal to them most.

JUROR 7- A loud, flashy-handed salesperson type who has more important things to do than to sit on a jury. They are quick to show temper, and quick to form opinions on things about which they know nothing. Is a bully and, of course, a coward.

JUROR 8- A quiet, thoughtful, gentle person. Someone who sees all sides of every question and constantly seeks the truth. Someone of strength tempered with compassion. Above all, they are someone who wants justice to be done and will fight to see that it is.

JUROR 9- A mild, gentle old person long since defeated by life and now merely waiting to die. A person who recognizes themself for what they are and mourns the days when it would have been possible to be courageous without shielding themself behind their many years.

JUROR 10- An angry, bitter person. They are a person who antagonizes almost at sight. A bigot who places no value on any human life save their own, a person who has been nowhere and is going nowhere and knows it deep within.

JUROR 11- A refugee from Europe. A person who speaks with an accent and who is ashamed, humble, and almost subservient to the people around them, but who will honestly seek justice because they have suffered through so much injustice.

JUROR 12- A slick, bright advertising salesperson who thinks of human beings in terms of percentages, graphs, and polls and has no real understanding of people. They are superficial snobs, but trys to be a good person.
