Theatre Works and OpticNerve Performance Group present Polygraph

Directed by Tanya Gerstle and written by Robert Lepage, Polygraph is part murder mystery, part love story and part metaphysical thriller, based on a series of interwoven true stories which unfold as personal and political perspectives shift.

In this era of Post-Truth Politics, does lying need to be disguised anymore? Is the notion of truth a reality or only a perception? In POLYGRAPH, truth is on trial just as it is in our current political landscape.

POLYGRAPH is a play noir: 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, criminologist in charge of polygraph examinations. Together, they uncover a series of unanswered questions with dire implications for everyone involved.
