“Imagine the black-humoured banter of Waiting for Godot dressing the bloodiest deeds of Greek tragedy, and you are near the mark of this deeply disturbing and yet engrossing play, stunningly realised in a National Theatre of Parramatta production by first-time professional director Bali Padda.”

“It’s not just that directorial debuts don’t come any stronger than this, few productions of any sort do.”
Sydney Morning Herald

Sondhi and Caplash imbue their odd couple-esque characters with the perfect amount of individual likeability and collective chemistry, meaning that they can dominate the stage together and on their own. “

“A great lie makes for dynamic and eventful storytelling , and a superb and entertaining ninety minute of live theatre.”
