PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Working Title Playwrights - is proud to present The Liar’s Child by Sharon Mathis as part of their signature series, The Ethel Woolson Lab.

A legacy of violence. Accusations, delusions, and lies. Is killing in the genes? A son must choose between parents, and do an unspeakable wrong for the right reason. In the nightmare of living with his act, Orestes discovers the truth about his family and a promise of peace.

Based on Aeschylus' Oresteia, the play is history told by the outsiders- women, children, and servants. As it unfolds inside Orestes' head, time is fluid; the dead can resurrect; and the living become demons or gods. The story is as old as myth and as new as a dream.

This staged reading is part of Working Title Playwrights Ethel Woolson Lab which brings together the top playwrights, directors, and actors in the Atlanta theatre community for meaningful collaboration in the creation of new, full-length plays for the stage.
