February, 1979. The government killed JFK. July, 2019. Measles outbreaks are up 300%.
A nondescript small town in the heart of the American Midwest.
An empty room with no windows, somewhere in the north or east or north-east of London.
On the edge of town, a stranger appears.
On the makeshift stage, a person stands.
A detective. An actor. It’s the morning. The evening.
Set between the 1970s and today, (This Isn’t) A True Story explores conspiracy, community and why we believe what we choose to believe.
The stranger smiles, lifts his hand to wave.
The lights go down. Opens his mouth to speak.
The fictional performance is beginning.
Performed by members of the Almeida Young Company (18-25).
*Location: Performances take place at The Rose Lipman Building, 43 De Beauvoir Rd, N1 5SQ
