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.
“an emotive, filthy love letter to the almost-lost art of being in a room, together”
★★★★ Financial Times
“it is as if we ourselves are at the turbulent centre of King Lear”
★★★★ The Guardian
“one of the most important writers and theatre makers in the UK”
