FICTION by Steven Dietz
Linda and Michael, successful writers who happen to be married to each other, thrive on the give-and-take of their unusually honest relationship.  But when they decide to share their journals, the boundaries between past and present, fact and fiction, trust and betrayal begin to break down.  No life, it turns out, is an open book.
Stephen Dietz, one of the country's most prolific, versatile, and widely produced playwrights, has had over twenty of his plays performed throughout the United States, Off-Broadway, and produced worldwide to critical acclaim.
Dietz is the master of the perception shift. In each of his works there is an unexpected twist or series of twists that alter the perceptions of the characters and of the audience. In Fiction those shifts abound causing characters not only to doubt each other but also themselves. Through the use of the journals of the characters, he challenges the power of memory and its ability to reshape the events of our lives. Much of Fiction is addressed to the audience from these journals, challenging the audience to decide whether or not to believe the accounts of the past as the narrators describe them. This tension between trust and suspicion, between fact and fiction, is at the heart of this gripping drama.
Directed by Richard Harder.
Featuring Jennifer Bareilles, Joyce Henderson, and Michael Medici
