“The Truth Has Changed” is a solo monologue that traces the arc of American political life from 9/11 to Trump from a frontline perspective. From his experience as a first responder during 9/11, to his groundbreaking reporting on fracking, to his eye opening eco-flights over the Gulf of Mexico during the BP oil spill, to Hurricane Sandy, to the massive rallies for Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election and the Democratic Convention to Standing Rock and beyond, Josh Fox has been an active eyewitness to history. In “The Truth Has Changed,” Fox tells the story of this terrifying progression of American history from a front row seat.
The project was commissioned by legendary documentary producer Sheila Nevins for HBO as a solo performance to inspire action on climate change, fracking and democracy. And in the face of the advance of fracking and fracked gas power plants across the USA, the work has become more relevant day by day. “The Truth Has Changed” offers both a warning and a way forward for our besieged democracy.
