Description : Center Stage Conservatory presents its 2018 Season opener ‘A Lie of the Mind’ written by the Sam Shepard.

Hailed as Sam Shepherd’s richest and most penetrating play, ‘A Lie of the Mind’ explores family dysfunction and the nature of love set against the backdrop of the gritty America West. Told in three acts, the story alternates between two families in the wake of a severe and life-altering incident of domestic abuse. Marked by Shepard’s measured humor, heart, and steady eye i...n examining humanity’s potential for both compassion and destruction, the two stories collide, where the tensions that separate the families grow increasingly disturbing and dangerous.

This dark comedy is recommended for mature audiences.
