A one-woman show mixing story-telling, verse, spoken word, (gentle) audience interaction and a game of “Whose Lie is it Anyway”.
Join Francesca Beard, your sham-shaman, on an adventure into falsehood. Through a series of fabulous encounters, you will meet make-believe in its many forms, from political spin, to polite half-truths, to the lies we live by: ‘Capitalism is a meritocracy’; ‘Grandma, I love this cardigan’; ‘Yes, I have read the terms and conditions’.
Francesca is one of the most successful spoken word artists in the UK, and in this new show explores our place in a new “post-truth” world that's had enough of experts, but not enough of Donald Trump. It asks: ‘What is the global cost of make-believe?’, ‘Are all humans liars?’ and ‘Can the truth set us free?’
