WRITER USES WORDS TO TRAP ACTORS WITH ROPES: LIE LIGHT AT THE FRINGE TURNS TRUTH INSIDE OUT.

New play replaces “emotional bonds” with actual bindings.

CHICAGO- From the author of last year’s Let Me Count  (“a break out hit”-TimeOut Chicago), comes an ensemble play that exposes the way we lie by physically inhibiting its players.

Writer and performer Kate Healy explains “Every time a character lies, the actor twists their hand in a rope, immediately the audience is clued in, and can watch what that lie does to the actor speaking, the other characters, and the story itself.” Lie Light explores the many forms of dishonesty we exchange as humans in relationships; but rather than focus on bald-faced falsehoods, Healy highlights lies that live in our everyday language when we encounter what we don’t want to face.

It will be easy for those who see Lie Light to pick out the liars, but it will be difficult to discern who is right, who is good, and if the truth should even come out. The plot begs ethical questions every creative industry professional works through: can you sell a true story without hurting those involved? Do you transpose the truth and degrade its impact? Whose story is it, who is allowed to tell it, does the value of a message outweigh the traumatic effects that follow?

This is a play for people who lie, and everyone must.

Lie Light is showing at the Chicago Art Department at 1932 S. Halsted Street, shows are 8/31 at 8:30 PM, 9/1 at 7 PM, 9/7 at 10 PM, 9/8 at 5:30 PM and 9/9 at 2:30 PM. Buy tickets at chicagofringe.org or at Chicago Art Department.

Lie Light is directed by JeNae’ Nicole Taylor and features Kate Healy, Colin Fewell, Matt Patrick and Bailey Rose Murphy.
