Culture Project in association with the Innocence Project presents The Exonerated
Written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen , directed by Bob Balaban. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Culture Project’s New York premiere of The Exonerated, a ground-breaking dramatization of the real-life stories of six individuals who were sentenced to death and later freed amidst overwhelming evidence of their innocence. It is a powerful play culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and court records of individuals on death row. As timely as ever, The Exonerated is once again poised to increase visibility and to create a sense of urgency as part of a rising movement to restore justice to a system that has shown itself time and again to be deeply flawed. Since 1989, when the first DNA exoneration took place, an additional 292 post-conviction DNA exonerations have been won in 36 states.
Rotating cast features Stockard Channing, Brian Dennehy, Steve Earle, John Forté, K'naan, Delroy Lindo, Lyle Lovett, Chris Sarandon, Brooke Shields, and Sunny Jacobs (as herself)
