The advantages of concealing it, the drawbacks to revealing it.
La Vérité (The Truth) revolves around two married couples. Michael, married to Lauren, is having an affair with Alice, wife of his best friend Paul, using business meetings as cover for their trysts. It seems that Lauren and Paul both suspect their partners have been unfaithful, without knowing who they are sleeping with, but when Alice guiltily threatens to confess all, Michael is thrown into a panic. The truth, though, proves to be far from straightforward as we cannot be sure who is deceiving whom.
La Vérité (The Truth) has been a huge hit in Paris and cities all over Europe, including Berlin, Hamburg, Madrid, Rome, and London. The play will receive its Cantonese première in Hong Kong, produced by Project Roundabout.
