Right. Wrong. Both. Yes. No. Maybe. Black. White. Grey. Is there room for a clean conscience in the modern world? Is there anything to be had from being a ‘good boy’? Do liars really come to a sticky end? What would Pinocchio think today? Penned by Anton Saliba and directed by Jean-Marc Cafa’, Studio 18’s ‘Il-Giddieb Għomru Twil’ is a twisted tale that delves into the woes of a culture of impunity. Inspired by Collodi’s Pinocchio, the piece brings the renowned puppet’s story to a local level – but rather than simply accepting the pre-set binaries of right and wrong, Pinocchio questions his very conscience, sending him on a journey that will push his moral fibre to the brink. An hour of punches and surprises accompanied by Aleandro Spiteri Monsigneur’s reorchestration of Maltese tunes and movement directed by Rochelle Gatt, this new piece of theatre promises to keep it real,
