Alice and Michel are having an affair. Michel's wide, Laurence, has been asking him difficult questions. Alice's husband, Paul, is Michel's best friend. As deceits intertwine, the two couples find themselves lost in a maze of who-told-who-what, where each loving lie seems more necessary and each confession more indiscreet.
A brilliantly cruel comedy of the hypocrisies which hold society together, Florian Zeller's The Truth in a translation by Christopher Hampton premiered at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London, in March 2016.
