Meet Sonia: Nurturing Mother…Organic Farmer…Convicted Murderer

Hear the shocking stories of six innocent death row inmates who were released from prison after their convictions were overturned. Your worst nightmare becomes a reality when the justice system fails, thrusting innocent people into the volatile depths of the prison system. Taken from actual interviews and infused with hope, join these six as they reveal the true side of the story that was traipsed through the Courtroom.

Delaware Repeal Project and their coalition partners are partnering with DTC to do talk backs after the shows. Join our own executive director, Kathleen MacRae, for a discussion after the 2/20 show! Delaware Repeal Project and Witness to Innocence will also host a reception before the 2/21 show. Hors d’oeuvres will begin at 6 pm, with the show at 8 pm. Enter promo code WTI when purchasing your tickets for the 2/21 show and DTC will donate a portion of the proceeds to Witness to Innocence.

“Ten years after its New York Premiere, THE EXONERATED still has the power to unsettle.” – The New York Times

“THE EXONERATED remains possibly the best example of this particular style of docu-theater… speaks powerfully to both mind and heart.” – The New York Post
