In a world (ours) of fake news, we ask: In life, what is the truth? And in the theater? Is the theater to come to life, will it be a lie space? Does the actor have to lie to be true? Will there be godly lies?
These are some of the questions we asked to start the confrontation: from the characters ‘lies, to the actors’ truth. Lie is used to achieve the desired ends: and no one goes unpunished! Lies are used, as lies are abused today. It has made its way among us and with it the darkest ends in the history of mankind are reached.
