Again, this new play forms a pair with another of Zeller's plays. It's a kind of follow-up to 2016's playful comedy The Truth – so don't be surprised if The Lie is met with the same glowing reviews and West End transfer.
The Lie will feature Samantha Bond (James Bond’s Miss Moneypenny in the Pierce Brosnan era) as Alice, who notices her friend’s husband with another woman. Alice reckons she should tell the truth but her husband thinks otherwise. Cue moral dilemmas and gender conflicts.
If his other plays are anything to go by, expect piercingly perceptive and provocative drama – ‘the theatre is a place for questions and not for answers,’ Zeller has said – with emotions raised to fever pitch.
