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, a criminologist in charge of polygraph examinations. Together, they uncover a series of unanswered questions with dire implications for everyone involved.
Written by the globally-acclaimed director, playwright and actor, Robert Lepage and Marie Brassard and presented by the physically dynamic, boundary-pushing OpticNerve Performance Group, POLYGRAPH has been transformed to reflect the perception of our changing global reality.
