To tell you the truth,

Commissioned by Dublin Theatre Festival 2020.

Some things have happened in our lives that make us think that this is how things go.

Jo Fong and Sonia Hughes are middle-aged artists who live in Marsden, Yorkshire and Cardiff in Wales. They’ve invited six people who live in Ireland for a one-to-one conversation. The questions are deceptively simple, the answers are incredibly complicated.

It all takes time. Complexity takes time, it requires multiple voices, many levels of expertise and patience in the unspectacular.

Seven short film were presented of these fresh, unfettered conversations.

To Tell You The Truth is based on Jo and Sonia’s live show Neither Here Nor There.

Our Dublin conversationalists

Bobby Bhopal, Donatien Francis, Karen Miano, Oran Leong, Rosaleen McDonagh, Mavis Ramazani.
