Performance Notes

×

Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison. Iconic Canadian ranter and rocker Torquil Campbell has crafted a one- man show in which he impersonates Clark Rockefeller. The play asks “What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator?” And in the end, does an intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art? As despicable as he is mesmerizing, Clark can’t help but expose some potent truths about identity and how one makes one’s way in the world. Torquil’s dogged investigation and tall tale challenge us to  nd the truth in True Crime and confront our cultural addiction to a good story. Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, The Rockefeller Project is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.
