The play Dead Man Walking, based on Sister Helen Prejean's book and the critically acclaimed film of the same name, is Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins's uncompromising inquiry into violent crime and the issues surrounding capital punishment. Exploring the complex relationship between Matthew Poncelet, a convicted rapist/murderer on death row, and his spiritual advisor, Sister Helen Prejean, Dead Man Walking effectively examines such universal themes as revenge and redemption, fear and salvation, and, ultimately, forgiveness and love.
