Presented in conjunction with The Innocence Project, The Exonerated is an anthology of the accounts of freed convicts and emphasizes the stories of their lives after being sentenced to death.
Those auditioning will be asked to read from the sides provided. All cast and crew must be fully vaccinated before rehearsals start. In order to adhere to Covid safety protocols, we are asking actors to reserve an audition slot via SignUpGenius.
Robert: African-American, 30s. A former horse groomer from the deep South; hardened but not lacking a sense of humor. Deep rural Mississippi accent.
The role of Black Guy 2 is played by the actor who plays Robert.
David: African-American, 40. A gentle, sad man, born and raised in northern Florida (otherwise known as southern Alabama). He has a very strong spiritual sense and had aspirations to the ministry before being put on death row at age 18. He is continually engaged in a battle between resignation and hope.
The roles of Black Cop, Black Guy 1, and Black Inmate are played by the actor who plays David.
Male Ensemble 1 and 2: both white, 35-50. Male Ensemble 1 and 2 play police officers, attorneys, suspects, and other supporting characters. Both actors should be good with dialects and characterization, and different from each other in build and appearance. Both roles require highly versatile, commanding actors.
Male Ensemble 1: plays White Cop 1, Kerry's Defense, Sheriff Carroll, Jesse, Court Attorney, David's Prosecutor, Voiceover/Inmate, White Guard, Jeff, Cellmate, Ex-Boyfriend, and Farmer.
Male Ensemble 2: plays White Cop 2, Kerry's Prosecution, Rhodes, Deputy, Southern White Guy, Robert's Judge, David's Defense, Doyle, and The Prosecution.
