#StoryPlay no.10 - Stories are Lies Truthfully Told

Apr 22, 2014

Welcome to Storyplay - a Different Idea for Every Day

This one is a little more conceptually challenging - I have an exercise I give grown-up groups that I call “2 Truths and a Lie”, in which groups of three adults take it in turns to tell each other exactly that.
 
The game here is not just being able to tell the difference (guess?) between the two, but to have a proper grown-up chat about how it feels to tell each of these things. Where is the moral compass in telling a fiction for entertainment, versus telling it for personal gain, and how does its telling vary from a non-fictional anecdote? Is it okay to bend the truth for effect?
 
Probably not a game for toddlers. . .
