The theme of the night was “Little White Lies”
We’ve all told them. And this month, we're inviting our performers to tell us their little white lies. Maybe it's a lie they were caught out in, or one they've maintained for years. Maybe it’s a lie they tell or told someone close to them, or a stranger… or even themselves. Why did they feel the need to lie? When we dig deep, what’s really going on there? And most importantly: what is their truth? This month at Caveat we want to know how you're REALLY feeling!
