"One of our greatest fears is facing ourselves. So, mastered by that fear, we have become incapable of doing so or, rather, vehemently unwilling to do so. This is the heart of every psychological thriller..." This new play aims to explore the dynamic between oral evidence and the tumult of emotions at the witness of trauma. It seeks to investigate a particular disconnection, not only present in our social norms and legal system, but also, perhaps, in our natures. It looks at the question: is it an ignorant futility to attempt to discern "truth"?Using "Rashomon" as a point of departure, the account of a murdered man is retold and reenacted as the characters involved provide alternate accounts of the same incident.A detective is increasingly disturbed by a mother and her two daughters and what their starkly different versions of events reveal. As he investigates further, he finds it is beyond himself to distinguish truth from criminal deception.
