Based on real interviews conducted by playwrights Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, The Exonerated follows six former Death Row prisoners whose convictions were reversed. From their trials to their incarcerations to their eventual releases, this award-winning play uses the words of these innocent men and women as they share the stories of everything and everyone that they lost when they were wrongly convicted, as well as the lives they are working to rebuild. The inaugural collaboration between TIC and Next Theatre Company, The Exonerated will be staged at TIC in partnership with The Center on Wrongful Convictions and will feature a cast of professional and student artists working together on this exploration of the criminal justice system.
This program is partially sponsored by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
