THE EXONERATED Runs Jan. 25-Feb. 9

FT_The Exonerated logoTHE EXONERATED
Falcon Theatre
Jan. 25-Feb. 9
[Newport]

Directed by Paul Morris

Cast: Darryl Hilton as Delbert, Dee Anne Bryll as Sunny, James Troup as David, Keith Holland as Robert, Brian Griffin as Gary, Phineas Clark as Kerry, Joy Rolland-Oba as Ensemble 1, Karson McCall as Ensemble 2, Kelly Hale as Male Ensemble 1 & Nathan Tubbs as Male Ensemble 2

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. In this ninety-minute intermissionless play, we meet Kerry, a sensitive Texan brutalized on death row for twenty-two years before being exonerated by DNA evidence; we meet Gary, a Midwestern organic farmer condemned for the murder of his own parents and later exonerated when two motorcycle-gang members confess. We meet Robert, an African-American horse groomer who spent seven years on death row for the murder of a white woman before evidence emerges that the victim was found clutching hair from a Caucasian attacker. We hear from David, a shy man with aspirations to the ministry, bullied into confessing at eighteen to a robbery/murder he had nothing to do with, scarred from a youth spent in prison and struggling to regain his faith; and from Sunny, a bright-spirited hippie who, along with her husband, spent seventeen years in prison for the murder of two police officerswhile another man confessed and was ignored by the courts. And we meet Delbert, a poet who serves as the play’s center, convicted of a rape/murder in the Deep South of the 1970s and later freed when evidence surfaced showing that he was not even in the town when the crime occurred. 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.

An Unlikely relationship is forged in a quirky tourist shop called “A little piece of heaven”.  Restless biker Mike, who works in the shop, finds a friend in sassy elderly Lily, although the relationship certainly doesn’t start out that way.  Bu there is something odd about this little shop owned by the equally odd Elizabeth and Henry.  Suspicion and disagreement turn to respect and trust in this place where long lost things are finally found.

THE GRADUATE Runs Jan. 24-Feb. 10

WFIT_The Graduate promoTHE GRADUATE
Warsaw Federal Incline Theater
Jan. 24-Feb. 10
[East Price Hill]

Directed by Greg Procaccino

Cast: Elliot Handkins as Benjamin Braddock, Madison Pullins as Elaine, Marissa Poole as Mrs. Robinson, Alan Kootsher as Mr. Robinson, Torie Pate as Mrs. Braddock, Brent Alan Burington as Mr. Braddock, Courtni Nicolaci as Stripper/Ensemble) & Aaron Whitehead as Priest/Hotel Clerk/Psychiatrist

Benjamin Braddock is a confused young man. Having spent four years crafting a brilliant scholastic record, he finds himself adrift upon graduation, uncertain about his future, disconnected from his purpose, and increasingly alienated from the upper-class, suburban, “plastic” world of his parents. Fighting panic and boredom, he is deeply conflicted but ultimately willing when Mrs. Robinson, the unhappily married, alcoholic, and dangerously charismatic wife of his father’s business partner, tempts him into an affair. Benjamin’s tenuous existence of lazy days and stolen nights falls apart when he falls in love — with Elaine, Mrs. Robinson’s upbeat, optimistic daughter. Terry Johnson’s stage adaptation of The Graduate, based on the novel and the iconic 1967 film, is a bitterly hilarious dark comedy, full of rapid fire dialogue between fascinating and horrifying characters. This play explores family dysfunction, parental expectations, crumbling marriages, and the naive, yet disillusioned, dichotomy of youth, against the backdrop of 1960’s America.
