Theatre Works – Polygraph

Theatre Works Polygraph

HotHouse is incredibly excited to be working with St Kilda’s iconic Theatre Works, bringing the best of independent theatre to Melbourne audiences.

With Bryce Ives, the newly announced Artistic Director at the helm, Theatre Works has an extraordinary season ahead with Polygraph, written by Robert Lepage and Marie Brassard with the boundary-pushing OpticNerve Performance Group, taking place in July.

Polygraph is 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.

Following the brutal murder of a young woman, police suspicion rests on one of her close friends, Francois, a student of political science. Six years later, during the making of a film about the incident, Francois meets Lucie, an actress, and David, a criminologist in charge of polygraph examinations. Together, they uncover a series of unanswered questions with dire implications for everyone involved.

In this era of Post-Truth Politics, does lying need to be disguised anymore?  Find out in Polygraph this July at Theatre Works, tickets available here.
