True Confessions

In the words of Oscar Wilde, "The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple."


Guest host Baron Vaughn presents three stories in which people ’fess up. The title gives it away in “As a 28-Year-Old Latino, I’m Shocked My New Novel, Memoirs of a Middle-Aged White Lady, Has Been So Poorly Received” by Carlos Greaves. In the Heights’ Anthony Ramos performs. A family secret is revealed in “1,000-Year-Old Ghosts” by Laura Chow Reeve, performed by Jennifer Lim. And Winnie the Pooh author A. A. Milne reveals a caustic wit—and his knowledge of book collecting—in “The Rise and Fall of Mortimer Scrivens,” saucily performed by Michael Cerveris, Jane Curtin, Peter Francis James, James Naughton, and Rita Wolf.
