“So I’ll just give you a moment to reflect: From 1976 to 1992, just remove that entire chunk from your life, and that’s what happened.” – Sunny Jacobs
Those sixteen years were taken away from Sunny Jacobs, who was a young mother when she was sentenced to death row for a crime she did not commit. Hers is just one of the voices of The Exonerated, a play based on the true stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row, told in their own words. Intertwining first-person monologues with scenes set in courtrooms and prisons is the poetry of Delbert Tibbs, one of the exonerated. These stories paint a picture of an American criminal justice system gone horribly wrong—and of six brave souls who persevered to survive it.
Presented by Pisces Moon Productions, renown for nine years for cutting-edge plays concerned with issues of social justice. Since its inception in 2002, royalties and collected monies from The Exonerated have been donated to the Exonerated Fund. The fund provides money to those who have been wrongfully accused and are now trying to reclaim their lives. For tickets and more information, please go to our website:
