About this show

The Metropolitan Playhouse presents Clyde Fitch's The Truth, a rare revival of a comedy of manners by one of the most influential and infamous turn-of-the-20th-century playwrights you've never heard of. When the snooping Eve Lindon catches Becky Warder chatting with her lascivious estranged husband, she aims to expose the affair in front of both of their households. Becky has a reasonable explanation for their meetings, but she's a pathological liar who insists on embellishing her story. Before long, her reputation and her marriage hang on the changing of her ways. The Truth is the second play of Metropolitan Playhouse's "Season Fifteen: Black and White," exploring American history and drama to comment on our Manichean age. There is no Thanksgiving performance on Thursday, November 23, and there are additional Wednesday night shows on November 26 and December 7 at 8pm.
