Out of the Box 5.00pm
The Jack’s Out of the Box segment brings you the premiere of White Lies by Helena Snider.
This was premiered as a ten-minute piece just over a year ago at Scratch entitled Reckoning (Dec 2018). It has since had performances in Glasgow, Durham and London (Matchstick Theatre R&D).
White Lies explores the inter-generational gap around sex, religion and sexuality in the intense environment of a small Christian school.
