Melbourne's OpticNerve Performance Group tackle this play by actor Marie Brassard and master theatre-maker Robert Lepage

Part metaphysical thriller, part murder mystery, questions of truth and deception are put on trial in this production by OpticNerve Performance Group, creators of 2016’s sold-out adaption of The Mill on the Floss. Based on a series of interwoven true stories, it follows young political science student Francois who, in the aftermath of the brutal murder of his best friend, falls under police suspicion. Six years later, a chance meeting with Lucie, an actress, and David, a criminologist and polygraph specialist, reveals a series of unanswered questions about the crime that will have serious repercussions for everyone involved. Written by actress Marie Brassard and experimental actor and director Robert Lepage, and directed by Optic Nerve’s Tanya Gerstle, it stars Grant Cartwright, Lachlan Woods and Emily Thomas.
