WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

What drives us hurt the people we love? And what stories do we tell ourselves to make it okay? In Shepard's darkly-comedic masterpiece, two estranged families are linked by a marriage both would rather forget - until a violent dispute forces them back together. Part myth, part life, part love story, this is a tale about growing up in the shadow of the American dream, about how our past generations shape our present lives, and about breaking out of the molds we inherit to find our way home. Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play in 1986, A Lie of the Mind probes the complex workings of the human heart and our ability to reconcile reality with illusion.
