The Menier Chocolate Factory has today announced that Samantha Bond will star as Alice in the English Language World Première of Florian Zeller’s THE LIE, in a new translation by Christopher Hampton.
THE LIE runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory from 14 September – 18 November, 2017.
The production sees the return of Zeller, Hampton and director Lindsay Posner to the Menier following the huge success of The Truth in 2016, which later transferred to the West End and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
Full casting will be announced shortly.
Alice spots her friend’s husband with another woman. Should she tell her friend the truth…or lie? Her husband Paul is convinced that it is better to lie. But in doing so, who is being protected and who suffers? Both find out that in matters of the heart, the line between the truth and a lie can be a dangerous one to cross.
