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.
“The Exonerated has been on Out of the Box Theatre’s production wish list for many years,” said Halina Malinowski, president of the board of directors. “We were scheduled to open the production in October 2020 but then the pandemic happened. In many respects, events that have transpired since the pandemic began — including the Black Lives Matter movement — have made this play even more relevant than when it was first produced.”
The cast includes Jrome Andre, Angela S. Arnold*, Susan Case*, Juli Cooper*, Kelly Gilmore, James Harter*, Garrett Lee Hendricks, Grant Machan*, Sean C. Turner and Steven Vega*.
The production is directed by Patricia R. Floyd. Lin Snider is the assistant director and Lawrence Floyd* is the stage manager. Costumes are by Katherine Roberson, with sound design by Zachary Dornfeld and technical direction by Bob Johnson. Halina Malinowski is producer and Susan Case is associate producer.
The Exonerated is presented by arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
