Preview: Lie With Me by Intercultural Theatre Institute
28 Oct 2019
'The latest batch of students from Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI) is just about ready to graduate, but before they do, they’ll be presenting one last show, with the Asian premiere of Lie With Me by award-winning playwright Kaite O’Reilly this November at the Esplanade Theatre Studio.
Directed by internationally renowned director Phillip Zarrilli, Lie With Me looks at contemporary life in Singapore through glimpses into the lives of eight young people, exploring issues such as the evolving ‘rules’ of sexual encounters in a ‘swipe right’ culture, and the ways in which people survive and form genuine relationships in an increasingly unstable and consumerist society.
O’Reilly and Zarrilli are acclaimed, frequent collaborators, whose play richard III redux was one of three finalist scripts for the prestigious James Tait Black Prize in Drama, which celebrates groundbreaking theatre produced worldwide.'
