Homework

Homework

When activists are forced to scatter and to connect through their mobile phones and laptops, who among them knows what is really going on? Who possesses the truth and do values change according to where they are? How do fear, imagination, ambition and lies shape the truth? HomeWork explores the differences between the truth and the believable, in the context of activism and corruption. Activists, who never stop working, hide what they do to survive. Corrupt people, who never stop working too, boasts about what they do to survive. The play tells the story of an activist girl stuck alone in a city she does not know, and then meets a corrupt man. She lies all the time, and he believes her. He says the truth all the time, but she does not believe him. How can choices be made?
