Tim Crouch: Truth's A Dog Must To Kennel


Lancaster Arts welcomes Tim Crouch back to the Nuffield theatre with his new provocative and exciting solo work.  

Truth’s a Dog Must to Kennel draws on ideas of virtual reality to send him back to the future of the play he left, Shakespeare’s King Lear. Back to a world laid waste by division and trauma; a world where the revolution will take place on a screen.  

This is a daring piece of theatre that switches between scathingly funny stand-up and an audacious act of collective imagining. It’s a celebration of live performance and a skewering of the state we’re in now.  

King Lear meets stand-up meets the metaverse. 

Please join us for a post show conversation with Tim Crouch and co-director, Andy Smith to talk about theatre in all its breadth - as political act, as gathering, as liveness. As a life practice.
