Deception Unit


Deception Unit


Deception Unit is a kitchen-sink tragi-comedy, a series of overlapping domestic narratives driven by the notion that our lives are fundamentally a series of well constructed lies. What happens when we lose track of our tidy narratives- the lies we tell ourselves, each another and the world- and truth exists only in the eye of the beholder? Examining the geopolitical through the lens of the quotidian, Deception Unit creates a world in which the audience’s perception becomes the principal arbiter of what is “true”.
