Herein Lies the Truth

April 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15 – $39

Riverside Theater in Iowa City will produce “Herein Lies the Truth” by University of Iowa MFA nonfiction candidate Aaron Pang, opening on April 18th and running through April 28th.  

Herein Lies the Truth is an autobiographical one-man show that tells the story of how an accident changed the trajectory of playwright and performer Aaron Pang’s life. Faced with a spinal cord injury, this show follows Aaron’s journey to understand this new body in the uncertain world of first loves, online dating, and sex. Aaron explores how he navigates the perceptions of the world as someone who walks with a cane. When strangers gesture to it and ask him “what happened?”, he is unsure of what to say. The show untangles his own understanding of his body and the stories he tells himself.  Part stand-up comedy and part storytelling, Herein Lies the Truth is a sincere, confused, and imperfect story about life and love with a disability.

Written and performed by Aaron Pang and Directed by Johanna Kasimow.

Sponsored by Jo Ann Bell and The Robert E. Yager Charitable Trust
