Lies & Love

During Tech Week of a new play written by their teacher, a love triangle blooms between seniors Mandy Carter, Mitch Nelson & Dave Miller. When Mitch tells a lie, it gets way out of hand and dangerous. This leads to themes of loneliness, friendship, secrets and, ultimately, love. Through the lies, people reveal who they really are and the truth isn't always pretty.
