The Exonerated on stage in Seattle

The Exonerated, an award-winning 2003 play about the wrongful convictions of six people and their release from death row, is on stage in Seattle through September 23.

In the play, actors tell the stories of Sunny Jacobs, Gary Gauger, Kerry Max Cook, Robert Earl Hayes, David Keaton and Delbert Tibbs, all of whom were released after serving time on death row for crimes they didn’t commit. (DNA evidence was not central to any of the six cases, so they are not included in the 207 DNA exonerations tracked by the Innocence Project.)

The Seattle production is presented at the Repertory Arts Theater.
