Lepage’s Polygraph Plays with Our Notions of Truth and Theatre
BY COLIN THOMAS
Sandhano Schultze, artistic director of Pink Ink Theatre, and Roger Gaudet, artistic director of Théâtre la Seizième, must be feeling like God’s chosen messengers these days.

In our society if they were anything but homosexuals showing their true colours would be historic.
