COMING IN MAY!

Pack of Lies

by Hugh Whitemore

Bob and Barbara Jackson live a quiet life in Ruislip. Their best friends and neighbours, Helen and Peter Kroger, an antiquarian book dealer and his wife, appear to be an ordinary Canadian couple living in an unremarkable London suburb. When MI5 pay a visit to the Jacksons, asking questions about their neighbours, the Jackson’s life is turned upside down, and friendships, loyalty and the possibility of betrayal all come into question? Can Helen and Peter, a seemingly conventional husband and wife, really be living undercover as spies to the Russians??!?

How well do you know your neighbours?!

Opening on Friday 1st May at Laguna Hall and running for seven performances, this British spy drama is strongly based on the true events of the Portland Spy Ring, an event that received worldwide media coverage!  The Portland Spy ring turned out to be the most significant Russian spy ring to operate in London during the Cold War.

Directed by Annette Rowlison (Nurse Ratched) and starring VA luminaries Cath Patterson (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine, The Family Frying Pan), Micaela Elphick (The God of Carnage, Away, Money and Friends), Craig Howe (Woman in Mind, The God of Carnage, Money and Friends) and many more, this is a show not to miss.  Book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!
