A new theater group called Tricksters and Truth Tellers puts on a show called Tricksters and Truth Tellers all weekend at Theatre Project on West Preston Street in Baltimore.

After a whirlwind courtship, an avid 30-something toy collector in a state of arrested development marries an over-medicated 30-something in a state of arrested development. The toy collector retreats into his subconscious when his crippling self-doubt begins to undermine his almost realized dream life.
