The Great Divide II: Plays on the Politics of Truth
March 14, 2018
Five short plays directed by Noël Raymond
By Christina M. Ham, Jessica Huang, Tim J. Lord, Stacey Rose, and Andrew Rosendorf with music by DJ Chamun
What’s the difference between fact and truth, and does it matter? What happens when our firmly embedded beliefs become facts? Is ‘truth’ a political concept? In a time when these questions are more relevant than ever, Pillsbury House Theatre commissioned five new 10-minute plays by local writers addressing the division in this country through the lens of the notion of ‘truth.’ The plays of The Great Divide II bring five new, unique voices to the discussion that began with our acclaimed 2017 production of The Great Divide: Plays for a Broken Nation.
