The Exonerated - The Actor's Gang

The Exonerated

  • 2016

  • Written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen

  • Directed by Cynthia Ettinger

Culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and the public record, The Exonerated tells the true stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words. Moving between first-person monologues and scenes set in courtrooms and prisons, the six interwoven stories paint a picture of an American criminal justice system gone horribly wrong—and of six brave souls who persevered to survive it. Minimally staged with 10 chairs as the set dressings, Ettinger utilizes only stage lights and original music by Dave Robbins to paint the picture of the characters’ journeys from isolation and entrapment to freedom and exoneration. This is the second play in the Season of Justice series, which aims to highlight themes of social justice in our society.
