About The Exonerated
In the form of a series of courtroom scenes and first-person monologues, The Exonerated pulls from, among others, the real-life case of Gary, a Midwestern organic farmer condemned for the murder of his parents but later exonerated when two motorcycle-gang members confess to the crime. The audience hears from David, a shy man with aspirations to the ministry which at age eighteen was bullied into confessing to a robbery/murder he did not commit who now, a man scarred from a youth spent in prison, is struggling to regain his faith.
Far from being an indictment of our criminal justice system that, when it goes wrong, can quickly swallow and dispose of innocents, the play reveals with touching affection and even disarming humor the resilience of the human spirit.
Backstage says that The Exonerated is “extremely moving, and regardless of your political leanings, these stories will touch your heart.” The New York Times says that “…years after its New York premiere, (the play) still has the power to unsettle.”
Falcon’s production is directed by Paul Morris. The cast includes Darryl Hilton, Dee Anne Bryll, James Troup, Keith Holland, Brian Griffin, Phineas Clark, Joy Rolland-Oba, Karson McCall, Kelly Hale, and Nathan Tubbs.
