The first full-scale staging of a darkly comic one-woman-show is in a theatre in Clapham next month.
The Girl Who Was Very Good At Lying tells the story of Catriona, a Northern Irish girl from a small town who lives in a dream world and is very, very good at lying.
When she meets an attractive American tourist, she decides to show him around her small town.
To keep him entertained, she might have to blur the line between fact and fiction, just a little.
The award-nominated play by Eoin McAndrew will star Rachael Rooney as Catriona.
Mr McAndrew said: “It’s going be very funny and quite dark and a little bit weird and a bit sad and a bit happy and I think audiences will love it.”
Marie McCarthy, artistic director of Omnibus Theatre, said: “Omnibus Theatre has a long history of supporting Irish and Northern Irish artists and audiences, and we are delighted to be bringing The Girl Who Was Very Good at Lying to life once more.
“The response to the play’s run at the Jermyn Street Theatre’s Footprints Festival was wonderful, and we cannot wait for Omnibus’ audiences to experience the powerhouse performance from Rachael Rooney and Eoin’s darkly comic but deeply touching play.”
