It was good. Well acted. The subject of the play points out the complexity of an issue that is often seen in simple, victim/bad guy terms. There was some funny stuff but would not call it a comedy really.

Description

Directed by Jon Cohn. A co-production with Mutineer Theatre Company. Lie with Me was Mutineer Theatre Company’s inaugural production. This world premiere, written by Keith Bridges in collaboration with company members, opened in March, 2009. The piece is a frank and oddly comic story about people who can’t seem to help the damage that they inflict upon one another. A lifetime of discretion and collusion is exposed as the family matriarch falls ill. The turmoil unleashed provides a psychologically sexual account of complicity on a scale that leaves no one untouched. The play deals with mature themes and subject matter.
