What are the evolving ‘rules’ of sexual encounters in a ‘swipe right’ culture?
What lies do we tell each other and ourselves in order to survive in an increasingly ‘throw-away’ consumerist society?
How do we form genuine relationships in this post-truth unstable world?
ITI presents the Asian premiere of Lie With Me, led by the award-winning team of playwright Kaite O'Reilly (“a writer to cherish” - The Guardian; “thought-provoking and entertaining” - The Stage) and director Phillip Zarrilli (“masterful artistry” - Disability Arts Online; “intellectual audacity coupled with sophisticated storytelling” - Wales Arts Review).
Performed by the international cast of ITI’s graduating cohort, Lie With Me takes a clear-eyed look at contemporary urban life in Singapore, through glimpses into the lives of eight young people trying to find their way in the world.
Performances will be live-captioned.
