Whenever you tell yourself “I DO NOT FIND THIS EROTIC” and a little snag churns your gut and whispers that you’re in denial, Mr. Truth is with you.
In a series of tragicomic nightmare vignettes, a masked demon-like entity follows people who repress their “erotic truths” and forces them to confront their desires in spectacularly painful ways.
Like watching a parody that blooms into a revolting orgasmic hallucination, it’s off the beaten sketch comedy path, with a satisfying dose of the primal, the lurid, and the bizarre.
MR. TRUTH is presented as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Government of Canada.
