An explosive true story of lust, lies and obsession, talhotblond brings Emmy-winning journalist Barbara Schroeder's feature documentary to the stage in a chilling drama. A married man becomes involved in an online love triangle with an 18-year-old girl going by the screen name talhotblond. But what the man doesn't know about her eventually leads to tragedy. In this cautionary tale for our times, nothing is what it seems. Kathrine Bates, author of the long-running Los Angeles favorite The Manor, adapts this shocking and timely story. Learn More
