Dead Man Walking at Brattle Street TheatreIt’s a long while since I last saw the movie of Dead Man Walking, so I’m looking forward to watching the movie with a group of people getting together at a special showing in Cambridge, Massachusetts in September.

This is a special event. It’s being organized jointly by the Massachusetts Citizens Against the Death Penalty (MCADP) and the Dead Man Walking School Theatre Project, aka the Play Project. All the proceeds from the night will go towards the Play Project.

The MCADP has become a major sponsor of the Play Project, enabling it to reach more students, more colleges and more communities across the country. Harvard, Yale, Marshall and a bunch of smaller colleges and high schools will be participating in the coming year, using the power of art to open up deep thought and discourse on the death penalty.

If it’s been a while since you saw Dead Man Walking or if you’ve never seen it or if you’d simply like to come along and join the discussion, here are the details:

Where: Brattle Street Theatre, 40 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA
When: Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 7pm

After the screening, we’ll have a talk back session where I’ll be joined by the Play Project’s director, Steven Crimaldi. I’ll also be signing copies of Dead Man Walking and The Death of Innocents.

Won’t you join me?
