    Clark Rockefeller is a real-life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison, and iconic Canadian ranter and rocker Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size. 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? Torquil’s dogged investigation and impersonation challenges us to find the truth in true crime and confronts our cultural addiction to a good story. Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, True Crime is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.

    "What makes this show so very smart and entertaining is the way Campbell draws you into a web of stories and constantly keeps you guessing about what you can and can’t believe. Art imitates life imitates true crime." - The Toronto Star ★★★1/2
    "He quickly demonstrates impressive acting chops, proving himself a funny, engaging raconteur and performer as well as a talented writer.” - NOW Magazine NNNN
