DIRECTED BY FAY LOMAS.
29 June -
8 July 2021

Overview

“I’ve always been a good liar. If you have a skill, you have to hone it.”

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. However, when she meets an attractive American tourist, she decides to show him round her small Northern Irish town. And soon she's introducing him to a world of cannibals, atrocities committed by the English, and the largest orgy ever held in Ireland on consecrated ground...

Award-winning director Fay Lomas (Out of the Dark, Rose Theatre Kingston; Hunger, Arcola), directs this new piece by Eoin McAndrew (Internet Boy (1999-Present), Living Newspaper, Royal Court; BBC Comedy Room 2020).
