The Art of Mendacity


Bear Pit Theatre (UK)

How many lies have you told today? The average person lies twice a day – but then, they could be… This is an age of mendacity, where politicians lie, and the media spins half-truths. But Bear Pit Theatre are getting more personal. Because deceit is at the heart of humanity. These are the verbatim accounts of lies that have broken hearts and saved lives, told through physical theatre and puppetry in a glorious carnival of everyday strangeness.
