THEATRE WORKS and opticnerve PRESENT
POLYGRAPH BY OPTICNERVE 17 JULY – 29 JULY In this era of Post-Truth Politics, does lying need to be disguised anymore? Is the notion of truth a reality or only a perception? In POLYGRAPH, truth is on trial just as it is in our current political landscape. POLYGRAPH is a play noir: part metaphysical thriller, part murder mystery and part love story. Based on a series of interwoven true stories, the story unfolds as personal and political perspectives shift. Six years after being suspected of the brutal murder of his closest friend, Francois sets out to make a film about the incident. Teaming up with Lucie, an actress, and David, a criminologist in charge of polygraph examinations, Francois uncovers a series of unanswered questions with dire implications for everyone involved. Written by the globally-acclaimed director, playwright and actor, Robert Lepage and presented by the physically dynamic, boundary-pushing OpticNerve Performance Group, POLYGRAPH has been metamorphosed to reflect the perception of our changing global reality. “There can be no doubt that Polygraph is an amazing work. Conceptually it is spectacular. The action never lets up and there are surprises from beginning to end - immerse yourself in all its nuances and twists.” – BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
