Midtown Productions Presents: The Exonerated

What effect does it have on an innocent person to have their freedom and self-respect stripped away and then, ostensibly, returned years later after decades of incarceration?  Culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and the public record, The Exonerated tells the stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words. The true, breath-taking stories are presented in first-person monologues and scenes, set in courtrooms and prisons.  The six perfectly interwoven stories paint a picture of an American criminal justice system gone wrong —and of six brave souls who persevered to survive it.

Contains adult dialog and stories.   Not recommended for people under age 12. 

Tickets:
$20 – Adults
$18 – Seniors (65+)
$16 – Child/Students w/ID
