We are finally here. Dead Lies, a brand new political thriller from Hilary Bonner and Director Joe Harmston hits theatres this Thursday, and tours the UK through to the end of June.
After a few cast changes, Covid calamities and lots of planning and preparation, the time has come to introduce you to a gripping new world of spin, sex and intrigue.
The action takes place during a fiercely fought election campaign. The story follows Peter George (Jeremy Edwards), a politician who promises a new kind of politics beyond sleaze and spin. He is welcomed as a messiah by the British public and expected to restore trust in a broken political system. But a shocking secret lies in the past of our country’s hero.
As buried truths rise from the ashes, will his rise to power be destroyed by ghosts from another time?
Personal and political influences begin to shake the faith of those closest to him, and a media cascade threatens to bring down Britain’s new saviour. How far will he go to save his own career, and how far will those around him go to save their own skins?
Expect the unexpected. No one is safe.
Full cast list and tickets can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you at the theatre this spring and summer!
