Truth Be Told is wacky, satirical look at the rise of our increasingly confessional culture unfolds as a live action reality show. Five women with five secrets battle it out for a chance to win money and fame under the watchful eye of the show’s fabulous host, Wayles. Featuring an original sound score by Neil McFadden and the larger-than-life video art of Dianamaria Adams, Truth Be Told crams an entire season of reality show hilarity, tension and triumphs into just 50 minutes of non-stop action. Blending dance, scripted text and videotaped “true” confessions, this evening-length work explores the multi-faceted nature of confession as a political ritual, a personal act of contrition and a highly-produced genre of entertainment.
