In the US today, for every nine executed, one is proven innocent.
This play tells the stories of six wrongly convicted inmates.

Held in Middle Temple Hall on 16th May 2017, with a stellar cast of actors, barristers and exonerees and the support of two passionate directors, our production explored innocence on the death row, as well as how other factors such as racial bias and politicisation of the court system continue to prevent full access to justice.
