SRT is kickstarting its 2019 season with The Truth – a brilliant comedy about a man caught up in a tangled love affair. Molière Award-winning playwright Florian Zeller has been lauded as “the most exciting new theatre writer of our time” by The Guardian, with The Truth acclaimed as “a devious must-see” you do not want to miss.
Alice and Michel are having an affair. Michel’s wife, Laurence has been asking him difficult questions. Alice’s husband, Paul, is Michel’s best friend. As deceits intertwine, the two couples find themselves lost in a maze of who-told-who-what, where each loving lie seems more necessary and each confession more indiscreet.
Florian Zeller’s The Truth, premiered at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London, in 2016, in association with Theatre Royal Bath Productions. The Truth is “a devious must-see” (The Guardian) you do not want to miss.
Florian Zeller is a French novelist and playwright. His work has been translated into a dozen languages, including English.
