We will be sharing excerpts from our show, Little White Lies, currently in the Capital Fringe Festival. Exploring truth and lies as they manifest in the ‘Self,’ in community, in politics and war, in entertainment and media, and in relationships. Colorism and erasure. Whitewashing. Little White Lies is a fractured fairytale for our times.
