LIES YOU CAN’T MAKE UP – A DRAMA SCRIPT ABOUT JFK
Two-to-eight actors portray galvanizing characters in this drama script about JFK, and who he was and what he represented. The play is non-linear with flashbacks and flash forwards. The characters are taken from history of the twentieth century and various facts are put forward about their interactions with each other, some true and some fictional. The real question is – Which are facts and which are fiction?
At indicated times the characters speak as a unified voice, and may be considered a Greek chorus — which initiated fervent non-linear mantras and morality tales about the complexity and inherent corruption of giving birth and rebirth to democracy.
