Six male and six female actors needed all of whom with distinctive clarity in their respective vocal range and who are highly capable of functioning within a group dynamic and creating the required tension and realism of an audio production.
Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury (comprising men and women) must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning a statutory life sentence for the accused, an inner-city teenager. As the dozen people try to reach a unanimous decision while closed off in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy's fate.
CORNELL MOON - THE GUARD
(FEMALE) (FOREWOMAN) KARLA CROME
A woman who is impressed with the authority she has and handles herself formally and with assertiveness.
JUROR NO. 2 (MALE) RORY BYRNE
A meek, hesitant man who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of his own. Easily swayed and usually adopts the opinion of the last person to whom he has spoken.
JUROR NO. 3 (MALE) NATHAN STEWART
Strong, forceful and opinionated within with a streak of sadism. Humourless and intolerant of opinions other than his own who forces his wishes and views upon others.
JUROR NO. 4 (FEMALE) KATIE HOLLY
A woman of privilege, a practiced speaker who presents herself well. She sets herself above the other jurors, only concern with the facts and appalled at the behaviour of the others.
JUROR NO. 5 (FEMALE) NAOMI PIPER
A naive young woman who takes her obligations in this case seriously but, who finds it difficult to speak up.
JUROR NO. 6 (FEMALE) SIMONE BAXTER
Honest but dull woman who reaches decisions slowly and carefully. She finds it difficult to create positive opinions.
JUROR NO. 7 (MALE) MARK HENDERSON
A loud, flashy type who has more important things to do than to sit on a jury. Short-tempered, quick to form opinions on things about which he knows very little.
JUROR NO. 8 (MALE) LAURENCE DUGGAN
Quiet, thoughtful, gentle. He sees all sides of every question and constantly seeks the truth. A man of strength tempered with compassion. Above all, he wants justice.
JUROR NO. 9 (MALE) COLIN JONES
A mild gentle older man who recognises himself for what he is and mourns the days when it would have been possible to be courageous without shielding himself behind his many years.
JUROR NO. 10 (MALE) PAUL MYERS
Angry, bitter. He antagonises at sight. A bigot who places no values on any human life apart from his own, a man who has been nowhere and is going nowhere.
JUROR NO. 11 (FEMALE) NELL GREEN
A refugee from Europe, she speaks with an accent and will honestly seek justice due to her own experiences.
JUROR NO. 12 (FEMALE) GEMMA WALSH
A slick, bright advertising woman who thinks of human beings in terms of percentages graphs, and polls and has no real understanding of people. A superficial snob.
