During my pre-show research before seeing TRUTHMACHINE, I came across a 1996 book by James L. Halperin entitled… The Truth Machine. Set in the future, everyone must take a lie detector test in order to get a job, buy a car, or even get married. Eventually everyone wears the machines constantly, eliminating all social disorder and misconduct. I haven’t read this book – and neither, so it turned out, had the cast/creators. Amazingly, TRUTHMACHINE appears to be the perfect sequel to The Truth Machine.
