Lies, lies, lies! They make your head spin - but they make the world go round too...

A snappy comedy full of twists and turns that bristles with repartee and unexpected situations, and along the way sheds light on key questions about lying, the truth, and the difficult business of keeping a relationship on the rails, The Truth-Teller by David Crook, will get its world premiere at the King’s Head Theatre, Islington, from Monday April 9 - Sunday May 6.

Jonathan has a chronic lying problem. He can't utter a single true word. He can't even give the real version of his address when he tries to order a minicab. His compulsion wreaks havoc for himself and those around him. Finally, his girlfriend offers him an ultimatum - it's either the lies or her - and this sets him on a path that leads to a revolution in his relationship and his life.

Cast: Tom Radford, Martha Barnett, Gary Cady, Sammy Kissin, Naveed Khan 

Writer David Crook’s first play, for children and written entirely in rhyming verse,  gained a number of five star reviews. His modern-day version of the Da Ponte/Mozart ‘Don Giovanni’ was first produced by Opera East and subsequently went on to several sell-out tours. 

Director Svetlana Dimcovic's recent credits include a sell-out run of The Potting Shed by Graham Greene at the Finborough Theatre and 45 Minutes From Here at The Bush Theatre.

Designer Christian Taylor has worked with Punchdrunk and Slung Lowe. He is currently working on Dev's Army (Elysian Productions) and Unclean Until The Event, a site specific promenade piece.
