Critical MOMENTS: Nothing But the Truth
Based on the Documentary Novel by AVI
Nothing But the Truth follows the story of Philip Malloy, who breaks a simple rule at school and finds himself at the center of a national media firestorm. Paralleling current events of media outrage, there are no easy answers as to what the truth is, and issues of respect, personal freedom, and patriotism are explored. Following the format of the original novel, this dramatization by Ronn Smith utilizes alternative staging elements and a unique presentation.
Nothing But the Truth is presented through special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing.
