Purple Rose Theatre

Vino Veritas
Mar. 23 - May 27, 2017

On Halloween night, two couples prepare to attend an annual costume party. Though the evening begins as usual, familiar traditions unravel when the foursome shares a bottle of South American ceremonial wine made from the skin of blue dart tree frogs. Under the influence of this tribal truth serum, the couples experience an unpredictable night of unbridled honesty that stretches the bounds of their friendship forever. Join us for this revival of a Purple Rose favorite and our 100 th play.
