A blistering play about our need for honesty in relationships and how it can sometimes bring about their downfall.

Ana calls Edward’s bluff on their disintegrating relationship and enters a deadly truthful world where honesty is celebrated in all of its dangerous glory. While for Helen – loving mother, homemaker, wife – beneath the civilised veneer of her life, a dark truth threatens to surface.

Sam Holcroft’s play While You Lie was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in July 2010.

‘When I say that this is a deeply unpleasant play I mean it as high praise’
