WYOMING — “The Truth Has Changed,” a new theater work performed by Emmy winner and Oscar and Drama Desk Award-nominated filmmaker, playwright, and activist Josh Fox (“Gasland”), will play The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Wyoming Valley Church, 20 Church Road, at 7 p.m. Aug. 22.
Initially commissioned by HBO, “The Truth Has Changed” is a solo monologue tracing the arc of American political life from 911 to the Trump era. The piece, which will be filmed as part of a feature film for release in 2019, traces Fox’s experiences as a first responder during 911, his groundbreaking reporting on fracking, his eye-opening eco-flights over the Gulf of Mexico during the BP oil spill, Hurricane Sandy, the massive rallies during the 2016 election and the Democratic Convention, Standing Rock, and beyond.
Fox’s first book, “The Truth Has Changed,” with introduction by Bill McKibben, will be published by Seven Stories Press on Sept. 11, 2018.
Golden Globe winner and NOLA resident Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes has penned the score for this theatrical piece, adding an immediate emotional musical impact to the work.
“The Truth Has Changed” is written and performed by Fox, directed by Ron Russell, features original music by Alex Ebert (aka Edward Sharpe), dramaturgy by Morgan Jenness, project advising by Nathan Lemoine, Susan Barnes, Kyle Cadotte, and Bonnie Sue Stein, and is produced by International Wow Company, GOH Productions, and Barrow Street Productions.
This event is free and open to the public.
