All the Things I Lied About

Katie Bonna

PaperBack (17 Apr 2017)

Would the world be a better place if we were all honest? 

Fringe First winner Katie Bonna is giving a TED talk on the science of lying. Well, that’s not quite true. TED haven't actually asked her to do one – yet. From duping her sister into drinking wee to repeated infidelities, Katie unpicks her history to confront humanity’s obsession with fibs.

'Katie Bonna unflinchingly explores the pathology of lying in a beautifully structured piece of writing' Evening Standard ★★★★★

'Katie Bonna launches into her solo show like she’s giving a TED talk. She wants to talk about lying... Gradually this fairly familiar theatre-lecture format gives way to something more raw and personal. The show morphs into a story about psychological abuse as Bonna begins to talk about her family and the lies her father told to her mother; the pain he caused... She is a warm, intelligent presence, and she handles the piece’s shifting emotional demands with skill... [a] moving, potent and personal solo show.' The Stage ★★★★

'It’s very clever, and moving, with a superbly nuanced performance by Katie herself... the most powerful thing about the show is its ability to make us question the stories we regularly tell ourselves' London Theatre 1 ★★★★★

'Honest in its material, unparalleled in its performance and unmissable in its charm.’ Upcoming ★★★★★
