Farcical Fun, Marvelous Mystery, Lots of Laughs
Reading Between the Lies is an excellent show for those looking to produce a short, mysterious farce. The play features ten fun characters that allow the performers cast to explore different types of the 1940s. This is a perfect selection if you're looking for a show that features an ensemble instead of one or two leads with side characters. Our Civic Theatre produced this show for our 100th production, and it was well-received across the entire audience spectrum.

This show is prop-heavy, so if selected, I'd recommend looking for several of the more specific pieces early. I loved the set for Reading Between the Lies; it's a single room but offers something different than the norm. The bar and stairs allow for a different look than many of the single-room comedies available through Eldridge. These elements shouldn't turn anyone away from the show.

I'd recommend Reading Between the Lies to any High School or Civic Theatre. I'm honestly surprised it doesn't have more upcoming productions. Give it a shot!
