A Darkly Funny Sequel to Pinocchio
'Every now and then, you comes across a play that seems to ignore the lines between children's and adults' theatre, comedy and tragedy, circus act and bare monologue to convey the sublime itself. The Greatest Liar in All the World is not that play. It's funnier!' – The Skinny
The story of The Liar, a world-weary music-hall hypnotist who has reached the end of his tether and threatens to end it all. His company of glamorous and not-so-glamorous assistants distract him from his imminent demise and convince him to tell the story of his infamous origins. Familia de la Noche's hilarious mix of clowning, puppetry, music and shadow play tells a story of extraordinary encounters, curious characters and lost love. Based on the story of Pinocchio, The Greatest Liar in all the World takes the audience on a roller-coaster ride through the life of the man who used to be a little wooden boy.
