presents the world premiere of FACT & FICTION
a play by William Nedved
directed by Dámaso Rodriguez
starring William Nedved & Adam Silver
William recollects his year in Brazil as a high school exchange student – the worst exchange student ever. Adam confesses to being stalked by a vengeful film student. Both dudes bring to life hilariously unreliable stories that will, quite truthfully, blow your mind.
Tale #1: “FACT” – Using passages from his actual journal, William recounts, corrects and recants the tale of leaving rural Iowa for a coastal Brazilian city where he was taken in by a host family straight out of a telenovela. As this travelogue of sunburn and wanderlust unfolds, William reflects back on why he kept that journal (in such good penmanship), and what it all means now.
Tale #2: “FICTION” – Adam is a Chicago-bred actor living in Los Angeles taking on the daunting role of Adam, a Chicago-bred actor living in Los Angeles who is being stalked by a deranged and relentlessly autobiographical filmmaker. Suspend your disbelief for this creepy, thrilling and howlingly funny true-ish tale.
“Clever, funny and fresh! Solid date-night entertainment.”
