Omnibus Theatre’s critically acclaimed The Girl Who Was Very Good at Lying will be at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
“I’ve always been a good liar. If you have a skill, you have to hone it, or else you’re spitting in the face of God’s bounty.”
Catriona has a history of making stuff up. But she’s getting better. When an Attractive American Tourist arrives, she decides to show him around her Northern Irish town. And she might blur the line between fact and fiction, just a little…
Soon she’s telling him about cannibal peasants, human roosters, and the largest orgy ever held on consecrated ground.
A multi-award nominated show about the stories we tell to escape.
