"A devious must-see"

Closed 3 Sep 2016

AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH!

After a successful run at the Menier Chocolate Factory earlier this year, Moliere winning Florian Zeller's brand new play transfers into the West End for a limited run. One of the most in demand playwrights working today, Zeller shot to fame with 'The Father', a touching portrait of life been a daughter and her ailing father. The Truth takes a lighter tone, being a witty farce of adultery and friendship...

Like his other plays, The Truth will be adapted by Christopher Hampton, with direction from Lindsay Posner. The cast from the Menier run will also reprise their roles.

SO WHAT IS THE TRUTH?

Concerning morally fuzzy (and married) businessman Michel (Alexander Hanson) and his affair with doctor Alice (Frances O'Connor), who is also similarly attached, The Truth examines the consequences of deceit, pushing Michel to breaking point as he tries to maintain a happy facade and an explosive affair. But he may have less cause to worry as it becomes increasingly obvious that his wife Laurence (Tanya Franks) may also have taken a lover, one rather too close to home for his liking...

WHAT WE SAY

The Truth hurts in yet another Florian Zeller sell-out

Alexander Hanson's portrayal of a narcissistic adulterer is sublime in this dark comedy by Florian Zeller, and helps hold the production together amidst occasionally shaky scenes. more »
