Never have I ever... 
...Talked too much when I was nervous. ...Kept silent to protect a friend. ...Bent the truth for my job. ...Told a lie to a stranger for fun. ...Stared into the fridge and wondered what I was looking for. ...Lied during a questionnaire. 

Join Francesca Beard, your sham-shaman, on an epic adventure through a wonderland of lies, fictions, Wikipedia facts and the stories we tell ourselves. Through a series of fabulous encounters, you will explore make-believe in its many forms, from political spin, to polite half-truths, to the lies we live by: ‘Capitalism is a meritocracy’; ‘Grandma, I love this cardigan’; ‘Yes, I have read the terms and conditions’. 

Francesca is one of the most successful spoken word artists in the UK, and has developed innovative work such as Chinese Whispers and Animal Olympics.
Directed by Rob Watt, (Standby for Tape Back-up ) this new show explores our place in a new “post-truth” world that's had enough of experts, but not enough of Donald Trump. It asks: ‘What is the global cost of make-believe?’, ‘Are all humans liars?’ and ‘Can the truth set us free?’

Brought to you by TAKEOVER: A festival of spoken word produced by Apples and Snakes.
