I’m on my way. I didn’t see your text. Your leggings aren’t that see through. I have read the terms and conditions. The government is on your side. One drink. Make-up. Money. Law. Language.

Funny, dark and thrilling, Truth Be Told is a mind-bending new play about how to maintain a functioning reality.
