Edmonton’s internationally notorious playwright, Brad Fraser, is back with an outrageous new comedy of bad manners. A huge hit in both the UK and Canada (with the play premiering in Toronto), True Love Lies opens The Cultch’s 2011/12 season with a dark and dangerous comedy exposing a modern family and their secrets. True Love Lies is produced by Touchstone Theatre.

Brad Fraser’s Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love was a huge hit for Touchstone in the early 90’s; True Love Lies meets up with two of its characters – Kane and David – 20 years later. Kane is now straight, married, and living in mortgaged suburbia with two kids. David’s reappearance outs dad to his kids and forces the question, “does true love ever die?”. 

“So fast, so explosive, so uproariously funny and devastatingly true you may not know what hit you.” — Houston Chronicle

With lightning fast one-liners, acidic exchanges and witty characters, this hilarious new play shatters our illusions about the “perfect” Canadian family.
