Director Rachel Lambert is looking to cast the following:
- 3 African-American males between age 20 and 60
- 4 white males between age 20 and 50
- 2 white females between age 30 and 50
All auditioning will be asked to read from the script; copies are available in the Civic Theatre office.
Culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and the public record, The Exonerated tells the true stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words.
Moving between first-person monologues and scenes set in courtrooms and prisons, the six interwoven stories paint a picture of an American criminal justice system gone horribly wrong - and of six brave souls who persevered to survive it.
The readings will take place Tuesday, December 8 at 7 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette and also on the Purdue University campus on a date and location yet to be announced. Both are Pay What You Can Events.
