Dead Lies

By best selling crime writer, Hilary Bonner

-

Dead Lies is a fast-moving, hard-hitting political English thriller from No.1 best selling crime novelist Hilary Bonner.

Offering a feast of murder, scandal, sexual indiscretion and political intrigue, this world premiere of Dead Lies is directed by critically acclaimed director Joe Harmston and stars Holby City’s Jeremy Edwards. Jeremy is joined by Portia Booroff, Alicia Charles and Claire Dyson.

The action takes place during a fiercely fought election campaign. The story follows Peter George (Edwards), a politician who promises a new kind of politics beyond sleaze and spin. He is welcomed as a messiah by the British public and expected to restore trust in a broken political system. But a shocking secret lies in the past of our country’s hero. As buried truths rise from the ashes, will his rise to power be destroyed by ghosts from another time?

Personal and political influences begin to shake the faith of those closest to him, and a media cascade threatens to bring down Britain’s new saviour. How far will he go to save his own career, and how far will those around him go to save their own skins?

Expect the unexpected. No one is safe.

Dead Lies is a roller-coaster ride of a play, packed with twists and turns until the very last scene.

Hilary does that rare thing writing a thriller for the stage: like Agatha Christie, she puts psychology first, making Dead Lies the best sort of whydunnit
