Reviews from Past Producers

In this poignant comedy, teenager Liz Nostrand presents her life as a competition, complete with scoreboard and time clock. The goal of the game: To dramatize, in only 30 minutes, 100 significant lies told by and to Liz.

By the final buzzer, though, we see that the most crucial lies in Liz's life are those she has told herself.

One Hundred Lies brings you in laughing and sends you out thinking.
