Theatre: Singapore Repertory Theatre’s The Truth
Drama lovers, catch the first weekend of this acclaimed play at the KC Art Centre. This witty and comedic play by the Singapore Repertory Theatre is all about sex, lies and best friends’ wives. Long story short: Michael is having an affair. His lies to cover it up get bigger and bigger (like all lies eventually). But the truth is revealed, it’s far from straightforward and we find out who is deceiving whom. Written by French award-winning playwright Florian Zeller and translated by Academy Award-winner Christopher Hampton, The Truth will have you rolling in the aisles.
