The Exonerated to be Performed on Long Island 3/9 & 3/10/07

The Exonerated, by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, winner of the 2003 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards and voted the #1 play of that year, will be performed on Friday, March 9, and Saturday, March 10, at 7 pm, at the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island auditorium, 38 Old Country Road, Garden City, New York.

The Exonerated tells the true stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words. The stories present a picture of an American criminal justice system gone wrong and of six brave people who persevered to survive it. This intense, riveting and moving play is based on interviews, letters and actual transcripts.

The play is performed by the Ethical Players and directed by Ken Schwartzman. The performances are followed by discussions led on Friday by Arthur Dobrin, leader emeritus of the Ethical Humanist Society of LI and professor at Hofstra University, and on Saturday, by Peter Neufeld, co-director of The Innocence Project.

Tickets are $20; $10 for students with IDs.

  1. Did we ever settle the issue of the play’s time? New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty and http://www.martytankleff.org list the starting time listed as 8:00PM. I left a message with Muriel Neufeld to reserve tickets and mentioned the question of the starting time. I have not heard back.
