Local actors will perform a staged reading of this award-winning play by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, which is based on interviews with more than 40 exonerated death row inmates across the U.S. One reviewer called it "An artful and moving evening of documentary theater … on one hand a devastating memorial to injustice, but also a tribute to the resilience of human hearts and minds." It was performed off Broadway more than 600 times and a special performance with an all star cast was recorded and released as a film. The cast will discuss the play with audience members following the performance. This is an official event for Silicon Valley Reads 2017.
