The Lying Kind


by Anthony Neilson


directed by Ian Black


Two dysfunctional policemen, Constables Blunt and Gobbel, are sent to break some bad news to an elderly couple at home on Christmas Eve. Their actions are delayed by indecision and the interruption of a vigilante group led by the larger-than-life character of Gronya. When they get to achieve their task, it seems the news has beaten them. What follows is a series of misunderstandings, uncertainty and confusion that build into this excellent modern-day black farce.
