RAG guessing game Sept. 24
Roxbury — Truth or Consequences? The audience gets to decide at the Liar Show on Saturday, Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m. at Roxbury Central School presented by The Roxbury Arts Group.
Launched in New York in 2006 and hosted by its creator, writer/illustrator and fellow storyteller Andy Christie, “The Liar Show” has assumed, as lies often do, a life of its own. A regular feature on the comedy club circuit, “Liar” features the energetic expertise of stand-up comics, writers, performers, and the occasional unconventional professional, all of whom spend around 20 minutes trying to convince an audience of their respective “true life” tales.
“These are the kinds of stories we tell each other all the time,” said Christie in his introduction, referring to the long-running traditional storytelling series, “The Moth” in New York City, a common source for “Liar Show” participants. The twist, Christie almost incidentally added, is “which one of these four people are lying to you?”
The premise is this: Four storytellers share true 10-minute tales from their lives, except one of the “true” stories is a complete fabrication. Audience members get 20 minutes or so to interrogate the speakers, then decide for themselves.
Tickets are $15, $12 for seniors and students. Call 607 326-7908 for reservations and information.
