A Lie of the Mind is Sam Shepard’s poetic and emotionally complex portrayal of love, family dysfunction, betrayal, and the nature of memory and identity. Set in the American West, the play’s action alternates between the two families of Beth and Jake in the aftermath of an act of severe spousal abuse that leaves both characters grappling to repair their lives amidst the disintegration of their homes, families, and country. As the characters collide in search of their identities, we are driven to question our own relationships, our roles in the places we call home, and our dependence on the flawed and ephemeral qualities of memory.
