Winner of Best Script and Best Performance of the Year at the 2011 Hong Kong Drama Awards.

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.

Wong founded her own theatre company, Princess Blackbox, and her solo show My Grandmother’s Funeral won her Best Actress Award at the Hong Kong Drama Awards. Her second solo show, Crazy for Cats, was premiered in 2009 to critical acclaim. Her script for the film Beyond Our Ken won the Best Script Award at the Hong Kong Golden Bauhinia Awards.
