In the tradition of the play The Exonerated comes Lucasville

Dear all:

In the tradition of the play The Exonerated comes Lucasville: The Untold Story of a Prison Uprising. However, unlike the former death row prisoners in The Exonerated, the subjects of this play are still sentenced to be executed, still pursuing their appeals, and still struggling against injustice.

Lucasville is a moving and powerful theatre presentation, written with the cooperation of the five men who were sentenced to death for their alleged roles in the 1993 uprising that rocked the maximum-security prison in Lucasville, Ohio.

Clarence Darrow: The Search for Justice will engage our government and justice system in a presentation that trembles with inescapable timeliness. This Darrow is not always the hero or at his best, but with serious legal problems of his own that scarred and haunted him forever. Famous for his work in the Scopes "Monkey" Trial, Darrow also fought against the death penalty and saved 102 men from execution.

Gary L. Anderson is nationally renowned as Darrow. "Anderson's Darrow is in the same league as Holbrook's Mark Twain." . Eureka Times Standard
