Spring play opens Feb. 26

Staff Writer

The KC Theatre Department will perform “The Exonerated,” written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, as the first and only play of the spring semester.

The play is a documentary that incorporates interviews, letters and court records focusing on the true experiences of six individuals who had been convicted and sentenced to prison, then later proven innocent.

Kathy Barber, director and theatre instructor,  said she chose this play because it  “exemplified a specific genre [the students] study and it also allows for a mixed-race cast.”

Performances will run 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, to Friday, March 1, followed by a 2:30 p.m. show on Sunday, March 3, in the Van Cliburn Auditorium.
