Redgrave and Sheedy Read "Stolen Time" for Women Center Stage April 21

News   Redgrave and Sheedy Read "Stolen Time" for Women Center Stage April 21 Lynn Redgrave and Ally Sheedy join activist and memoirist Sonia "Sunny" Jacobs for After the Exonerated at the Culture Project April 21.

Penned by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, The Exonerated is culled from the stories of 40 former death-row inmates who were later found innocent and released.

Three-time Tony nominee Redgrave and Sheedy both appeared as "Sunny" in the Off-Broadway run of The Exonerated, which featured Jacobs' story.

Redgrave, Sheedy and The Exonerated's director Bob Balaban join Jacobs for a conversation and reading from her new memoir "Stolen Time" at 8 PM at the East 13th Street Theatre.

At 27 years of age, Jacobs was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death by a Florida court for the murder of two police officers. Imprisoned for 17 years (1976-1992), Jacobs writes in her memoir, "In a world of one, I am alone, more alone than I have ever been in my life. Locked up in a box within a box where no one can enter and I cannot leave. I am to await my death." Since her release Jacobs has been a voice for the broken American criminal justice system.

After the Exonerated is presented as part of the Culture Project's ongoing Women Center Stage Festival, which runs through April 27. Tickets for Women Center Stage are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting www.cultureproject.org.
