Don’t miss this powerful examination of the American criminal justice system’s gaping holes in need of serious reform, and the resilience of the human spirit of the brave souls who survived it.
The Exonerated is the interwoven true stories of six Americans, wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death row, only to be set free decad
es later when newly discovered evidence proved their innocence.
Told in their own words, through first-person monologues and scenes set in courtrooms and prisons; brilliantly adapted by Jessica Blank and Eric Jensen from interviews, letters, court transcripts, case files and the public record.
Directed by Richard Mancini.
The Exonerated runs Fridays-Sundays February 23-March 4 at The Bijou Theatre, located at 275 Fairfield Ave. in Bridgeport.
Stage Level Tickets are $15-20 and Mezzanine Level Seats are $25-30, and can be purchased through The Bijou website, www.BijouTheatreCT.com.
A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to The Exonerated Fund administered by The Culture Project, who distribute ALL collected funds to those exonerated of their wrongful convictions to rebuild their lives after release.
