Chinese artist Lin Bo’s harrowing story of imprisonment has the world standing to attention. His fame, however, is short-lived, as an American publisher begins to question the authenticity of his story. Is he telling the truth or has he been caught?
Accusations fly as Christopher Chen’s inventive new play exposes the thin line between truth and fiction, where it is often difficult to tell the difference between the con artist and the conned.
