“The Exonerated” onstage in New York

Opening tomorrow in New York City is a production of “The Exonerated,” the hit play by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen in which the true stories of six people sentenced to death for crimes they didn’t commit are told in their own words.


Kerry Max Cook

, who served 22 years on death row in Texas for a crime he didn’t commit, will answer questions after the performances this weekend, and Innocence Project Staff Attorney

Alba Morales

will speak on a panel after the Nov. 10 performance.

The play runs through Nov. 11. For more information and to buy tickets

or call 212-712-6322.

Each production at the Red Fern Theater supports an organization that addresses the themes of the play. A portion of proceeds from “The Exonerated” will go to Brooklyn Law School’s

Second Look Program

, which works on non-DNA post-conviction innocence claims. The Second Look Program is a member of the

Innocence Network

.
