The closing event of Theatricum Botanicum’s 40th Anniversary Season, which is directed by Ellen Geer, benefits Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum.

The cast features James Avery, Beau Bridges, Jamie Hector, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy, Wendie Malick and Brent Spiner as well as Theatricum company members Aaron Hendry, Constance Lopez and Gerald C. Rivers.

"Weaving together true stories of individuals who were sentenced to death but subsequently found innocent, The Exonerated," press notes state, "is at once an indictment of social inequity, a celebration of human dignity and a testament to our evolving aspirations towards a more enlightened society."

All proceeds benefit Theatricum’s repertory productions and education programs.

The Mountain Mermaid is located in Topanga, CA. Parking is available at Theatricum Botanicum, 1419 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., with shuttle service to The Mountain Mermaid beginning at 5:30 PM.
