Vino Veritas

Vino VeritasA mystical wine forces its imbibers to tell the truth.

WHAT: Vino Veritas. West Coast Premiere engagement of a new comedy.

WHO: Written by David MacGregor. Directed by Michael Karm.

Vino Veritas. The play takes its title from the Latin proverb, which literally translated: "in wine, the truth," suggests that people reveal their truest feelings under the influence of alcohol. On Halloween night, two middle-aged couples prepare to attend a friend's annual party. Though the evening begins as usual, familiar traditions slowly unravel when the foursome share a bottle of South American ceremonial wine made from the skin of blue dart tree frogs. Under the influence of this tribal truth serum, they share an unpredictable and hilarious night of unbridled honesty that stretches the bounds of their friendship and their relationships forever.

Winner- Purple Rose Best New Play, Michigan.

David MacGregor is the playwright. He is the author of fifteen plays, among them Scrooge Macbeth, Paris of the West, Towards the Perpetuation of the Human Species, Paternity Ward, The Hero’s Journey and more.

Michael Karm directs a cast that includes (in alphabetical order) Christine Joelle, Daniel Kaemon, Kirsten Kollender and Shawn Savage.

Vino Veritas debuted in Michigan in 2008. The current Theatre 40 production marks its West Coast debut. It is the second show of Theatre 40’s 2017-2018 season.
