I must be cast as Flo....I already have the voice for it!
Oh, I think it can accomplish its goals with a mix-gendered cast, and at least one juror is implicated as foreign, right? (I've seen the film more recently than anything). But there's a lot of "these people" and I get what you're saying. There may be something to it.
The whole "12 Angry People Other than White American Men" thing has always bugged me. The play was written for 12 angry white American men. In today's climate, that's what's going to give it the power to affect people. To leave them with a bad taste in their mouths. To affect change.
Yes, we have angry white American women. But right now, it's the men we need to be staring at, and this play is the perfect periscope.
