TOLERANCE PARTY: TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY JOSEPH HENDEL
Change of Date! Now Friday December 11, 2020 at 8PM
Originally slated for December 4, Nancy Manocherian's the cell theatre in association with DimlyWit Productions will now broadcast the third installment of TOLERANCE PARTY titled TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE on Friday, December 11 due to unforeseen circumstances. Reuniting the same cast of characters, as well as some new faces (and voices), this installment, written and directed by Joseph Hendel, finds our heroes huddled around a virtual campfire. Stories will be shared, new worlds will be unlocked, and maybe--just maybe--they'll bring "it" back to life. Audiences are encouraged to participate in a live chat function that will help determine the fate of the characters in following episodes. The cast includes Corey Allen* ("Mindhunter", "Manh(a)ttan"), Ji Chung, Bob Jaffe* ("Sweetbitter", "Brotherhood", Memory Retrograde), Nidalas Madden, Heather Mo'Witz, Richard Urquiza, India Meñete, Brian Reager, Peyton Rowe, and Steven Simring. Production design is by DimlyWit Productions, original music by Ricardo Romaneiro, co-conceived by Artistic Director Kira Simring (Yes!, Reflections of Molly Bloom, Crackskull Row).
TOLERANCE PARTY:TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE will be streamed on Friday December 11, 2020 at 8PM. Tickets are available on a sliding scale from $5 to $25. Running Time is 30 minutes. You may purchase tickets at the following link: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/thecelltheatre/456769
