As a Matter of Fact

The Post-truth Cabaret

2017

What happens in an era in which the truth is of no importance, but the public demands a single, unequivocal truth?

In the Post-truth era, there are those who spread alternative facts and false truths, as they call them, in order to shape reality in a way that suits their interests. And the result? Is scary. Very scary.

“As a Matter of Fact” is a satirical cabaret, comprised of original skits and musical numbers bringing the issue of the post-truth era to the Israeli stage for the first time. The show examines the fields in which alternative facts become dangerous and confronts the audience with the effects of this phenomenon on our lives. 

“We can’t change facts; but we have the words to play with” (Hanoch Levin)
