Presented in association with The Innocence Project, the production will be directed by Bob Balaban.
The rotating cast will feature Stockard Channing, Brian Dennehy, John Forté and Brooke Shields. Exoneree Sunny Jacobs, whose story is shared within the play, joins the cast for one week only, Sept. 25-30. Additional casting will be announced.
2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Culture Project’s premiere of The Exonerated, a "ground breaking dramatization of the real-life stories of six individuals who were sentenced to death and later freed amidst overwhelming evidence of their innocence," according to press notes. It is billed as "a powerful play culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and court records of individuals on death row. As timely as ever, The Exonerated is once again poised to increase visibility and to create a sense of urgency as part of a rising movement to restore justice to a system that has shown itself time and again to be deeply flawed."
Since 1989, when the first DNA exoneration took place, an additional 292 post-conviction DNA exonerations have been won in 36 states.
The Exonerated premiered at Culture Project in October 2002 when it received critical acclaim and ran for over 600 performances.
Show times will be Tuesday-Thursday at 8 PM, Friday at 7 PM, Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM and 7 PM.
