Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI) presents the Asian premiere of Lie With Me by award-winning playwright Kaite O’Reilly, directed by internationally renowned director Phillip Zarrilli.
Lie With Me looks at contemporary life in Singapore through glimpses into the lives of eight young people, exploring issues such as the evolving ‘rules’ of sexual encounters in a ‘swipe right’ culture, and the ways in which people survive and form genuine relationships in an increasingly unstable and consumerist society.
ITI’s graduating cohort performs three publicly presented plays as part of their curriculum. Lie With Me is their final graduation show for 2019, and is presented in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. This year’s graduating cohort includes students from Singapore, China, France and the Philippines.
