Whether it's Brian Williams "misremembering" his own war reportage or Bill O'Reilly allegedly "embellishing" his memoirs, every year more public figures are caught playing fast and loose with the facts ... and their reputations. Now Christina Gorman's riveting drama American Myth unravels one real-life case on stage. Based on actual events, American Myth follows a young journalist who accuses his old professor of lying about his war record. We meet the disaffected former student, egged on by his sensation-seeking editor. We see the loyal wife, caught and confused by her husband's complexity. And, finally, we watch a great man, a teacher of facts, face a very public humiliation and his own private truths. Winner of the 2012 Blue Ink Playwriting Award and an Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award, American Myth makes its Arizona premiere at Scottsdale's Theatre Artists Studio.
