SEELEY LAKE – The Seeley-Swan High School drama class took to the stage May 2 where they presented "12 Angry Men," a play written in three acts by Sherman L. Sergel, adapted from the television show by Reginald Rose.

The play was staged in a jury room following the trial of a 19-year-old for allegedly fatally stabbing his father. The 12 jurors were tasked with the decision to acquit or condemn. However the question of guilt quickly turned to reasonable doubt about the young man's guilt as Juror 8 (Autumn Morse) is the sole vote to continue discussing the assumed open-and-shut case.
