The Truth

Concert or Performance

22 Jun 2021 to 10 Jul 2021 Daily Event

Academy Award-winning French playwright Florian Zeller’s The Father wowed MTC audiences with a sell-out season in 2017. With The Truth, he delivers a devilishly dark comedy that took the West End by storm, collecting rave reviews and earning Zeller comparisons to Oscar Wilde, Noël Coward and Molière.

In this new production, acclaimed director Sarah Giles (Straight White Men) is joined by actors Michala Banas (Upper Middle Bogan), Stephen Curry (The Castle), Bert LaBonté (Kiss of the Spider Woman) and Katrina Milosevic (Wentworth), in exploring the truths that tear us apart and the lies that keep us together.

Michel and his wife Laurence are happily married. Michel’s best friend Paul is also happily married, to Alice. But Michel and Alice are having an affair, and Laurence seems to know that something’s going on. How far will Michel go to hide the truth? Why is Alice so keen to reveal it? What does Laurence actually know, or not know? And is Paul just pretending to be bad at tennis?

Presented in the English translation by Tony and Oscar-winning playwright and screenwriter Christopher Hampton (The Father), The Truth is a masterpiece of marital manipulations that sees the widely celebrated Zeller gleefully playing with our assumptions as he unravels a web of fiction, delusion and hypocrisy.
