Why Truth Matters

If “truth” is hard to define, as many people say, why does it seem to matter so much?‍

As part of the annual Cleveland Humanities Festival, Literary Cleveland is presenting Why Truth Matters, a free staged reading of original creative works on the topic of Truth.

The words in this reading have been crafted by 22 local writers and will be performed by professional actors under the direction of renowned local actor and director Ananias J. Dixon. The readings feature poems, essays, and short dramatic pieces investigating hard truths, uncomfortable truths, gospel truths, two truths and a lie. Taken as a whole, the work asks viewers to reflect on the meaning and importance of Truth from many different perspectives, including deeply-felt observations on truth from the personal to the political, truths that touch on families, communities, and entire nations.

Join us Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22, at 7 PM, in the ballroom at the Cleveland State University Student Center, 2121 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio. Admission is free, but reservations are requested.

This performance is made possible through the generous support of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities as well as Cleveland State University.
