Theater department stages Dead Man Walking

dead man walkingThis play, written by Tim Robbins, is based on Sister Helen Prejean's book of the same name about her experiences as a chaplain on death row. Directed by Professor Peter Harrigan, the play is an intense, thought-provoking moving drama. Sister Helen Prejean, who spoke at Saint Michael's on March 7, met with the student actors performing the show. "Many plays fittingly encourage the audience to escape from the outside world, but others force us to examine it". Dead Man Walking is definitely the latter, Professor Harrigan said. Rather than having the play produced professionally, Robbins offered it to schools throughout the United States to foster discussion about the death penalty. Contains mature content and language.
