Pack of Lies

Menier Chocolate Factory, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Based on a true story, Hugh Whitemore’s Pack Of Lies charts the tumultuous events that surrounded a middle-aged couple, the Jacksons, and their Canadian neighbours living in a London suburb in 1961. After the couple reluctantly agree to let a detective use their house while he investigates a Soviet spy ring, what follows rapidly descends into an alien world of deception and treachery.

This play is about the morality of lying, a “virulent disease that saps patriots and traitors alike of their humanity” (The New York Times), and after you leave the auditorium it will have you questioning what could be happening right under your nose, in your town, on your road, even in the house next door…

Pack of Lies is booking from 20 September 2018 until 17 November 2018 at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

The Jacksons are a nice middle aged English couple. Their best friends are the Krogers, their Canadian neighbours. All is blissful in their world until a detective from Scotland Yard asks to use their house as an observation station to foil a Soviet spy ring operating in the area. They are really put to the test when the detective asks them to help set a trap. Should they betray their friends… Or their country?
