Truth Game, The

Truth Game, The

Committed to developing and presenting new New Zealand work, the Fortune Theatre is thrilled to stage Simon Cunliffe's timely contemporary play, The Truth Game. Set in the newsroom of daily newspaper, The advocate, this vigorous drama confronts head-on the conflicts and contradictions of a world in crisis. In his debut full-length play, Cunliffe who is also a working journalist  at present Deputy Editor (News) of the Otago Daily Times  places his characters in a milieu increasingly under pressure, not only from economic reality, but also from an inexorable tide of new digital media. Frank Stone, an irascible and charismatic long-serving journalist, is a natural choice for promotion to the editor's chair, but will he compromise his standards and values to meet the demands of the paper's new corporate owners? and, if he does, how will this affect his deeply entwined personal and professional relationships?
