Synopsis Or Review:

Imagine everything you did between the years of 1976 and 2002.
Now remove all of it.

Those 16 years were taken away from Sunny Jacobs, convicted and sentenced to death for a crime she did not commit.

But her story is not unique. The Exonerated shares the true stories of six innocent survivors of death row.

Their stories, told in their words.

Heart-breaking and uplifting verbatim theatre The Exonerated is a powerful take on the death penalty culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and the public record. Written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen The Exonerated played off-Broadway to sell-out audiences for two years, has toured across the US and received rapturous applause, standing ovations and further critical acclaim at last year’s Edinburgh Festival.

This UK production of The Exonerated is timely. It highlights and brings closer to home what makes the death penalty a persistent topic of debate for the media, human rights activists and legislators. Today approximately 3,400 people are under the death sentence in the US, but since 1973 more than 115 people have been released from death rows throughout the States due to evidence of their wrongful convictions.
In 2003 alone, 10 innocent defendants were released from death row.
