TRUE CRIME
January 23 – 27, 2018

Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison, and iconic musician and provocateur Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size. What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator? And in the ned, does the intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art? Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, TRUE CRIME is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed how we all fake it, one way or another.

Venue: Vertigo Theatre
Tickets: $35
Time: 8pm
