New York 1937. Art and politics collide when the government padlocks the doors of the theatre on the opening night of Marc Blitzstein’s The Cradle Will Rock. The director, Orson Welles, marches the actors and most of the audience down Seventh Avenue and finds another theatre, and in one brilliant stroke makes theatre history.

It’s All True was nominated for the 2000 Governor General’s Literary Award. Among Jason’s many other plays Three in the Back, Two in the Head, which was also produced by Tarragon, won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama in 1995. Jason Sherman was playwright-in-residence at Tarragon from 1992-1999.

It’s All True was first produced at Tarragon in January 1999.
