A Lie Called the Present, by Jim van de Erve

In this play in verse, an elderly woman resists her husband’s yearning for freedom, as their children fight for power and control with forces that could tear the family apart.

The mother clings to her home, staving off dementia. Her children desperately hide their pasts and deny their futures.

In A Lie Called the Present, betrayal lurks in the depths of the family
