The Truth About Lying is a penetrating examination of marriage break-ups by Hong Kong’s talented young playwright, Wong Wing-sze. The award-winning play follows Emily, as she joins a small legal firm specializing in divorce law. The firm’s two partners are a husband and wife duo, and Emily proceeds to begin an affair with one as her relations deteriorate with the other. Playwright Wong’s sharp, insightful look at this complex situation is both profound and thought-provoking.
