"This is an emotionally riveting play with an extraordinarily talented cast. In turn, we hear the stories of six wrongfully convicted individuals. The Exonerated has a substantive book that follows the characters from the time of their arrest through to the difficulties they face readjusting after being exonerated. James S. Washington is brilliant as the poet, Delbert Tibbs, who says, "It's not easy to be a poet here, yet I sing." The play is very dramatic and moving. I highly recommend it!"

"90 minutes of uninterrupted testimony. The focus is on the wrongful arrests, their excruciating time spent in prison, and the aftermath of their proven innocence. Less time is spent on the mechanisms involved in righting the wrongs...The 10 very talented performers play multiple roles...The cast offer performances that help cement the evenings message."

Times Ledger

“Explores the dark side of our criminal justice system...An unsettling, hard-hitting documentary play recounted the riveting stories of six former death row inmates using their own words, from court transcripts, interviews and letters...Issues of race, law enforcement and the death penalty were brought to the fore, but there were occasional moments of humor to lighten things up...An exceptionally strong cast led by Seraphin, ‘The Exonerated’ seemed to possess an unmistakable power.”
