Dean Strang & Jerry Buting: A Conversation on Making a Murderer
Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House
Wednesday 25th January 2017

Tyne Theatre & Opera House are thrilled to announce a highly anticipated new show for January 2017.

Following the overwhelming success of their UK tour this year with numerous sold-out venues, Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, defence attorneys for Steven Avery in the Netflix docuseries Making A Murderer,return to the UK in January 2017 for several very special dates, including Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre & Opera House.

The live tour showcases an evening of conversation with these two compelling figures featured in the docuseries. Buting and Strang will participate in a moderated discussion regarding the operations of the criminal justice system in the United States and abroad, as well as the broader implications of the Steven Avery case. The night will also feature a Q&A portion for audience members to address questions directly to Strang and Buting.

Making A Murderer debuted in December 2015 and showcases Avery and his multiple alleged criminal cases, particularly the 2005 murder case of Teresa Halbach. Avery was convicted in March 2007 and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “We are honoured to host this greatly anticipated discussion between these two key figures from Making A Murderer - it will no doubt be an absolutely fascinating evening. This is an incredible opportunity for Tyne Theatre & Opera House, with 2017s programme quickly filling up with incredible shows.”
