ED2012 Words & Events Review: Grant’s True Tales Presents The Liar Show

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Words & Events Reviews

This is less of a show, and more of a full scale event. From the free whiskey cocktails upon entry to the luxe lounge complete with faux-Tiffany lamps, this is a truly slick production. We are presented with four storytellers, who spend around ten minutes each describing a story about their lives; occasionally funny, sometimes moving, but not always true. It is our task, as the scotch-sipping audience, to work out who is lying. From perfectly sound-cued music to flash VTs, this is a systematic enterprise of entertainment. Nevertheless, it certainly holds our attention for the duration of the show, and despite its high-shine polish, a lot of raucous fun is had by all.

Riddle’s Court, 4-14 Aug, 8.00pm.
