The ExoneratedIt was confirmed yesterday by the producers of the show, that Roger Waters will appear in the revival of "The Exonerated", the play about wrongfully convicted survivors of death row.

Roger and the actress Kathleen Chalfant will join the rotating cast of the critically acclaimed play for the production's final week at the Culture Project at 45 Bleecker Street in the East Village, appearing from November 27th, 2012, through to December 2nd, 2012. The majority of the shows are at 8pm, although the final day of the show (a Sunday) has a matinee performance at 3pm as well. Ticket links are below.

"The Exonerated" follows the true stories of six people who were sentenced to death and later freed after evidence of their innocence came to light. It had its premiere in October 2002 and ran for over 600 performances, with a rotating cast of stars reading accounts by former death row inmates.

The Culture Project revived the show in September to note its 10th anniversary, and several stars have joined the six-person company for temporary stints, among them Stockard Channing, Brian Dennehy and Brooke Shields.
