Katie Bonna's ALL THE THINGS I LIED ABOUT to Embark on UK Tour

Katie Bonna's ALL THE THINGS I LIED ABOUT to Embark on UK Tour

Fresh from a five star award-nominated (Offie nominations for Most Promising New Playwright and Best Female Performance) run at Soho Theatre, All The Things I Lied About is a fearlessly honest show for the post-truth era.

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. In a comic exploration of her past mistakes and inevitable future disasters, Katie unpicks how everyday lies can lead to a world of Trump and Brexit.

Bonna comments, All The Things I Lied About is hands down the most personal piece of work I've made, but the act of making it allowed me to join the dots between the lies I've experienced, the seemingly harmless ones that most people tell on a daily basis and the enormity of the post-truth society we are supposedly now living in.

How much do we really lie? Why do we do it? What does it mean to be honest? In a bid to save us all from the clutches of dishonesty, Bonna shares her own lie diary and the first and worst lies she ever told. Bonna exposes gaslighting - psychologically manipulating someone until they doubt their own reality and reveals some of the painful details of her past. But, despite all her efforts, is she really being as truthful as she claims?

Katie Bonna is an award-winning performance poet, actress and writer for stage and screen. Dirty Great Love Story, co-written with Richard Marsh, won a Fringe First Award at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where she was also nominated for Best Actress by The Stage. The play went on to run at Soho Theatre and in New York at 59E59 Theaters in 2013 and at The Arts Theatre, London in 2017.

Tickets are available from individual theatre box offices or at www.katiebonna.org/gigs.
