Emmy Award winners William H. Macy (Speed-the-Plow), Helen Hunt (Our Town), and Beau Bridges (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) are among the actors who will take part in a benefit reading of Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen's docudrama, The Exonerated, on November 9, the closing event of the 40th anniversary season of Theatricum Botanicum.

The Exonerated weaves together the true stories of individuals who were convicted of crimes and sentenced to death, only to have their sentences overturned when they're found innocent. Joining Macy, Hunt, and Bridges are James Avery, Jamie Hector, Wendie Malick, and Brent Spiner. Ellen Geer directs the reading, which benefits Theatricum's repertory productions and education programs.

The event will be held at The Mountain Mermaid in Topanga Canyon, California. Click here for more information and tickets.
