The Exonerated



Imagine spending days, weeks or months in a space that is cold and unfamiliar, with concrete walls and floors, and bars that keep you from going where you want.  Jails are not welcoming, nor are they meant to be. Imagine spending years in one, especially if you are not guilty of the crime for which you’ve been convicted. The Exonerated reveals true stories of exonerated prisoners from interviews and court transcripts, some of whom spent as many as twenty two years behind bars.

The Exonerated adapted by Jessica Blank & Erik Jensen will play from April 19, 2017 - April 29, 2017 in the Keating Theatre. Single Tickets can be purchased by clicking the button above or by calling the box office at (941) 366-9000.
