A Catholic drama group is staging a production on issues surrounding lies, white lies and truth
A local Catholic theatre group is embarking on a touring production of its latest play, Little White Lies, to mark the end of the Year of Faith.
Walk on Water Productions’ latest effort comprises three stories which examine whether the truth must always be told despite it being cruel to do so.
The production looks at how lies impact relationships between men and women and within a family, and how lies destroy relationships and break down communication and trust.
“This process began in January with us wanting to create a play based on faith,” Geraldine Wee, the group’s artistic director told CatholicNews.
“Through our reflections, sharing and research, we found that an essential component of faith was truth.”
Little White Lies was first staged for members of the Verbum Dei community at St Joseph’s Institution, Malcolm Road, on Nov 10.
Verbum Dei Sr Devy Pranadjaja said she enjoyed the production as the stories were “thought-provoking” and “real”.
Ms Angelia Pay said the stories set her thinking about the types of lies one encounters and the “grey” area of telling lies in situations. They have also inspired her to think about praying to God constantly so as to be acutely aware of one’s sub-conscious tendency to lie, she said.
