Description

When truth threatened my life, I told a lie.

How does telling the truth or lying shape the rest of our lives? What is the impact of speaking the truth on a family? Is there really such a thing as the truth?

Truth is a unique and dazzling new show that looks at the once-simple notion of truth in a messy modern age of fake news.

Helen Chadwick (War Correspondents, Dalston Songs) and Olivier Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated Steven Hoggett (The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child) have created a spellbinding fusion of song and choreography using testimonies collected from all over the world - some brutal, some hilarious. 

From Hackney to Norway and Manchester to Mexico, individual stories have been weaved together in this fresh and exhilarating piece of reflective song theatre. These stories describe a moment when someone told a truth or a lie, and the impact on their lives in doing so.

From the stories told, a woman would not be alive today if she had told the truth, a man would be dead if he had not.
