CityNews – On Thursday, March 9th 2017 the curtain rose at Kad Theater (Kad Suan Kaew) for the opening performance of The Gate Theater Group production of “The Exonerated” written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen and directed by Gate founder Stephan Turner.

 

The Exonerated, one of The Gate’s most successful productions, is a play featuring the real life stories of people wrongly accused of murder and put on death row in the United States. The story of six average Americans that reveals a very disturbing pattern within the judicial system. The writers received the Champion of Justice Award from the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers for their script.

 

The production had a strong effect on the actors as well as the audience. Ann Fink who appears in the role of Sunny says, “I was shocked! I never knew! I told my daughter, “if you get picked up by the police, never, never say anything. Call a lawyer. There’s nothing you can say to them that would help your case.””


Marie Frederickson, also a member of The Gate wrote in a review, “…a spare and dark stage setting. Strikingly dramatic lighting and a background music score that added even more to the storytelling atmosphere, Stephan and the cast shared their vision of injustice in the US legal system with the audience for an all too quick 90 minutes”.


Along the way “The Exonerated” came to the attention of Bruce A. Lasky, co-founder of BABSEACLE and Lanna Lawyers, the brother of Gate Theater member Arnold Lasky who plays “The Judge”. Bruce is a former legal aid criminal defense lawyer who feels it’s the legal profession’s obligation to seek justice and “exonerate” the mistakenly convicted.
