The Lying Kind

The Lying Kind by Anthony Neilson

Directed by Raine Deary

“This was a very clever and funny play. Layer upon layer was revealed and the situations became more and more farcical, surreal, with so many twists in the plot.   Just when we thought we had figured out what was happening, then it would twist in a most surprising manner, taking us on a completely different path.

We very much enjoyed the various characterisations.  The casting was good and there was a lot to appreciate in the individual interpretations from every member of the cast…

Well done to Lorraine and Colchester Theatre Group for choosing something different.  It is refreshing to find a contemporary comedy / farce that really works.”
