Traverse Theatre Company. By Sam Holcroft. Directed by Zinnie Harris,
award-winning playwright and director (Fall, Further than the Furthest Thing).

“Small lies, little lies, tender lies, well-intentioned untruths.”

Ana calls Edward’s bluff on their disintegrating relationship and enters a deadly truthful world where honesty is celebrated in all its dangerous glory.


They don’t make women like Helen anymore: loving mother, home-maker, wife. But beneath her civilised world, a dark truth threatens to surface. 


Two couples explore the threat of honesty, and our perverse need for it. A blistering play from one of UK theatre’s most exciting new voices, Sam Holcroft. Sam’s debut play,

Cockroach, was produced to great audience and critical acclaim by the Traverse and the National Theatre of Scotland.
