Directed by Lindsay Posner, the UK premiere of acclaimed Molière Award-winning playwright Florian Zeller’s The Truth invokes unforeseen consequences upon a businessman who succumbs to extramarital temptation.
Through the eyes of two couples, the production explores friendship, suspicion, deceit and, ultimately, The Truth, manifested in a biting comedy.
When businessman Michel has an affair with doctor Alice, who in turn is married to Michel’s best friend Paul, events escalate as Alice begins to demand more and more of her relationship with Michel. Unexpected ramifications lie in wait.
Having experienced monumental success with both The Father and The Mother at Theatre Royal Bath and subsequent London runs, Zeller’s plays have proven huge hits with London audiences this year. In this new version of the play by Christopher Hampton, The Truth promises to be equally lauded.
