The Menier Chocolate Factory presents the English language world première of Florian Zeller's The Lie in a translation by Christopher Hampton.
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.
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.
