THE GIRL WHO WAS VERY GOOD AT LYING

PRESENTED BY OMNIBUS THEATRE AND JUMP SPARK THEATRE
In her tiny Northern Irish town, Catriona decides to give an American tourist a creative tour of the local area’s history.

“I’ve always been a good liar. If you have a skill, you have to hone it, or else you’re spitting in the face of God’s bounty.” 

People keep telling Catriona that she’s not very well. She disagrees, but appreciates their concern. Admittedly, she does have a history of making stuff up, but she’s getting better. 

 When she meets An Attractive American Tourist, she decides to show him around her small Northern Irish town. And to keep him entertained, she might have to blur the line between fact and fiction, just a little…. 

 Soon, she’s regaling him with stories of cannibalism, ghostly statues, human roosters and the largest ever orgy held in Ireland on consecrated ground. But how long can she keep hold of her stories? 

The Girl Who Was Very Good At Lying is a multi-award nominated show about the stories we tell to escape. 

Starring Rachael Rooney in a critically acclaimed performance, directed by award-winning director Fay Lomas (Out of the Dark, Rose Theatre Kingston; Hunger, Arcola), and written by multi-award nominated Eoin McAndrew (Internet Boy (1999-Present), Living Newspaper, Royal Court; BBC Comedy Room 2020).
