The Truth

3 - 20 April 2019 | KC Arts Centre - Home of SRT

How long can you keep up a lie?

Michael is having an affair. His lies to cover it up get bigger and bigger. The truth, when revealed, proves to be far from straightforward – who is deceiving whom? Sex, lies and best friends’ wives – this witty comedy has it all!

“I did everything I could,
really, everything, to persuade
her to go on lying to you.
You have to believe me.”
- Michael

Florian Zeller’s The Truth, premiered at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London, in 2016, in association with Theatre Royal Bath Productions. The Truth is “a devious must-see” (The Guardian) you do not want to miss.
