    PERFECT MENDACITY by Jason Wells

    Street Corner Arts returns to its roots with its third Jason Wells’ play Perfect Mendacity playing at Hyde Park Theatre from April 7th thru April 22th.  The recipient of the prestigious 2010 American Theatre Critics Association M. Elizabeth Osborn New Play Award for an emerging playwright, Jason Wells crafts tight, socio-political satire bristling with energy, incisiveness, and humor.

    After an incriminating memo has been surreptitiously leaked to the media, Walter Kreutzer, a microbiologist for a major defense contractor, comes under unwelcome scrutiny. Forced to succumb to a lie detector test by his employers, Walter enlists polygraph expert D’Avore Peoples to help exonerate himself and his Moroccan wife, Samira. But does he or his wife have something to hide? Why seek a lie detection coach in the first place? In Perfect Mendacity, Mr. Wells with characteristic razor-wit and verbal wizardry explores the ramifications of duplicity and self-deception. To whom do such consequences create the most damage? The deceived or the deceiver?

    Starring Kenneth Wayne Bradley (MEN OF TORTUGA, A STEADY RAIN, KILLER JOE), Reginald Brown (MACBETH, WATER BY THE SPOONFUL, THE INVENTION OF LOVE), Michael Stuart (ORPHANS, WAITING FOR LEFTY, A WALK IN THE WOODS), Indigo Rael (THE NORTH PLAN, THE MOTHERFUCKER WITH THE HAT, THE PAIN AND THE ITCH), Brock England (THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS, ROSE RAGE, A CHRISTMAS CAROL). Directed by A. Skola Summers (SKYLIGHT, THE GREAT GOD PAN, THE NORTH PLAN, MEN OF TORTUGA).
