“I’ve always been a good liar. If you have a skill, you have to hone it, or else you’re spitting in the face of God’s bounty.”
People keep telling Catriona that she’s not very well. She disagrees but appreciates their concern. Admittedly, she does have a history of making stuff up, but she’s getting better.
But when she meets An Attractive American Tourist, she decides to show him around her small Northern Irish town. And to keep him entertained, she might have to blur the line between fact and fiction, just a little…
Soon, she’s regaling him with stories of cannibalism, ghostly statues, and the largest ever orgy held in Ireland on consecrated ground. But how long can she keep hold of her stories?
“The slick lighting and sound design (by Amy Hill and Lex Kosanke, respectively) perfectly complement Rooney’s abrupt shifts between characters.”★★★★★ – Olivia Rook for The Stage
The show is only elevated by the fantastic creative team, walking into the space was exciting and interesting which followed through into the piece always quietly shocking us with unpredictable moments- a team that worked very well together to highlight and uplift each other’s minds. Well done to Lex Kosanke, Anna Kezia Williams and Amy Hill.★★★★ – Alice Rose for North West End UK
