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.
