Byline Festival, Aug 24 - 26, 2018

Headliner Theatre - F00lishPe0ple - ‘The Lying Field’

Blur the lines of reality and invention in The Lying field; a theatre experience as much about the stories we tell ourselves as the story "on stage". Four, consecutive, hour-long shows will be running from 14:00-18:00 on Friday followed by four more from 13:00-17:00 on Saturday and Sunday. Written and directed by John Harrigan.

Fact or Lie?

The Lying Field looks like a normal field, but it’s not. The Lying Field serves an extraordinary function: it’s where the absolute truth is excavated, raw and unbidden from the depths of our story, for an honest appraisal of all the facts.

Have you lied more times than you’ve told the truth? Do you cherish myths or cold hard facts?

We are seeking donations of lies and truths. If you’d like to share one of the greatest lies you have ever told, or one of your greatest truths, then please email them to All lies and truths will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Ascention day is near! Remain calm and centred. Keep your heart open.

Shhhh… Do you hear that bell? Find your way to ‘TheLyingField’. Enter and learn the secrets hidden within.
