Tim Robbins’ ‘Dead Man Walking’ to hit Rockford stage

“Dead Man Walking,” a play written by actor/director Tim Robbins—who also directed the 1995 Oscar-winning film—is a gripping drama that tells the true story of Sister Helen Prejean’s remarkable journey alongside convicted killer Matthew Poncelet as he faces his impending execution. The play will be performed at the Rockford Fine Arts Auditorium May 6-8 at 7:00 p.m. each night.

On opening night, May 6, a panel—including an exonerated inmate, a murdered victim’s family member, and other experts in the capital punishment debate—will discuss their stories and answer questions following the show. This is a powerful evening of theatre you won’t want to miss.

Tickets are $6 for students and $8 for adults, and can be purchased at the Rockford Box Office or reserved by calling (616) 863-6031 ext. 7087.
