Following a successful run at London’s Soho Theatre, it has been confirmed that All the Things I Lied About will embark on a UK tour from September.
Fringe First winner Katie Bonna is giving a TED talk on the science of lying. Well, that’s not quite true. TED haven’t actually asked her to do one – yet. In a comic exploration of her past mistakes and inevitable future disasters, Katie unpicks how everyday lies can lead to a world of Trump and Brexit.
This comically honest show examines why we lie and asks what it means to be honest in the post-truth era.
Talking about All the Things I Lied About, Katie Bonna said: “All The Things I Lied About is hands down the most personal piece of work I’ve made, but the act of making it allowed me to join the dots between the lies I’ve experienced, the seemingly harmless ones that most people tell on a daily basis and the enormity of the post-truth society we are supposedly now living in.”
Katie Bonna is an award-winning performance poet, actress and writer for stage and screen. Dirty Great Love Story, co-written with Richard Marsh, won a Fringe First Award at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where she was also nominated for Best Actress by The Stage. The play went on to run at Soho Theatre and in New York at 59E59 Theaters in 2013 and at The Arts Theatre, London in 2017.
