We're talking to a couple of the people behind a new UVM production of a play dealing with issues of incarceration and the death penalty in America.

The Exonerated tells the story of six death row inmates who were wrongfully convicted and later had their convictions overturned and were released. We're talking to the director and an actor from a new production of the play at the University of Vermont. We'll discuss the play itself and the big issues it explores around incarceration and the justice system.

We're joined by Gregory Ramos, chair of UVM’s theater department and director of the production. And by Randall Harp, who plays the character of Robert Earl Hayes and is also a UVM philosophy professor. 

The Exonerated will run at UVM beginning Wednesday, Oct. 4 through Sunday, Oct. 8. 

Broadcast live on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
