Lies and the Truth

6 Jun

Today Peter and I were in the Griffin Theatre with two daughters and one grand-daughter. We saw the play THE HOUSE ON THE LAKE. The five of us went to a close by Indian Restaurant for a great lunch before the matinee.

THE HOUSE ON THE LAKE
BY AIDAN FENNESSY

A criminal lawyer with a cool head and a passion for logic, David wakes up to find himself confined to a small, sparsely furnished room, unable to remember what happened the day before. With the help of his doctor, David begins to coax memories out of the darkness, before the details of a terrible secret emerge.

Razor sharp and tourniquet tight, The House on the Lake is a psychological thriller so crafty it’s criminal. Mired deep in layers of deception, it’s a puzzle of a play certain to engage the intellect and assault the nervous system.

The House on the Lake is a twisting labyrinth of playwright Aidan Fennessy’s devising. Director Kim Hardwick leads the way through.

Commissioned by Black Swan State Theatre Company and developed with the assistance of Playwriting Australia.

I agree that this psychological thriller is quite an assault on the nervous system.
It deals with the problem of what to do when you are being lied to, and how difficult it can be to find out the truth.
Also what your reaction might be if you feel you are very seriously being attacked. How do you survive? Is it possible to survive?

      Very stimulating indeed, Catt. And also rather frightening to contemplate what human beings are capable of.
