MOMENTS OF TRUTH
A World Premiere Musical Comedy
Here it is - a floundering marriage - a lie detector, and what else could go wrong? Well there is a four decade history.
Nan is a really fine arts painter that struggle to give her confidence in herself, her marriage... and art broker 'Gerald'. Nan agrees to collaborate with her former art school roommate. Then there is scandal-ridden "shock artist" (Photographer.) They hope to rehabilitate their careers and get a prize in New York. They have a project that uses a lie dictator, to catch real-life models in their "moments of truth." A love triangle threatens to develop under her roof. Nan considers...should she bring the lie detector into her marriage? Hey -- Why not?
