ABOUT THE PLAY
This original musical comedy follows Nan, a mid-career fine arts painter. She loses her confidence after she is replaced in her long-term residency by an artist half her age. Her husband Gerald, an art broker, organizes an exhibit of her latest work . . . but her subtle impressionism is upstaged by ironic paintings of cows.
Nan agrees to collaborate with her former art school roommate, Chloe, a scandal-ridden “shock art” photographer. The two hope to rehabilitate their careers and land a prestigious prize ~ and an exhibit ~ in New York. Their unusual project uses a lie detector to catch real-life models in “moments of truth.” As a love triangle develops under her roof, Nan begins to lose confidence in Gerald, too. She wonders: is it time to bring the lie detector into her own marriage?
