Some things aren’t easy to tell.

How could anyone kill their own father?

An electrifying tale about retribution and justice, love and masculinity, this daring new play teases the boundaries between truth and lies, what you know and what you think you know.

Interrogates one of the rarest and most shocking crimes known to man, with the on-stage participation of convicted patricide Martin Santos.

The acclaimed 2016 show is back for 2017.

Ages 14+

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“Absorbing, intelligent, metatheatrical two-hander... Morbidly fascinating, delectably sophisticated... A rare treat.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage)

“Vividly entertaining... A clever, sometimes infuriating and occasionally exhilarating puzzle... Frequently sublimely funny.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“What a sharp, satisfying watch this is – a play that runs rings around its audience... Engrossing and slippery.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Ingenious... A fizzing, idiomatic translation... As the truth feels increasingly precarious the confusion is enjoyable.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“A tight, exhilarating two-hander on themes of violence and the ethical boundaries of theatre itself.”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“It was more interesting on the bus, frankly... Revels in being a maze and ends up hijacking itself.”

Ann Treneman (Times)
