A 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.
