The Story

The Lie is a popular comedy that debuted in Paris in September 2015.  Alice (Evelyne Bouix) has spotted her friend’s husband with another woman and is faced with an agonizing dilemma: should she tell her friend what she saw, or not?  Her husband Paul (Pierre Arditi) tries to convince her that she should hide the truth.  The concept of the truth becomes highly confused, leading many audience members to exit the theatre deep in conversation as to what really happened.

The Playwright and Actors

The Lie is written by the young and highly talented author Florian Zeller and directed by the renowned Bernard Murat. Adding to his already impressive repertoire, Zeller has also written The Father, which is currently playing at London’s Wyndham theatre.  The acting in The Lie is top quality, featuring Pierre Arditi, a César award winning actor.  The play also stars Evelyne Bouix, Arditi’s wife, both in real life and on-stage.
