Vault Festival 2016: All The Things I Lied About
Part documentary, part poetry, part comedy – mostly lies
London’s biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. Katie Bonna has not spoken to her father for seven years. Well, actually it’s more like three years because he did storm that Sunday roast that one time, but seven years sounds more dramatic and she wants you to know that this situation is dramatic. 2016 is the year of two weddings: her brother’s and her own. Her dad will be at one of those and it isn’t hers. As far as she’s aware, he doesn’t know she’s getting married. As far as she’s aware, he doesn’t even know she’s marrying a woman. All The Things I Lied About is a comic exploration of what estranged Katie from her father in the first place and what she’s going to do about it in the face of apparently being a grown-up. Part documentary and part personal experience, the award-winning writer performer will question what makes us all lie, what keeps us lying and why none of us really like honesty as much as we say we do. Show takes place in the Brick Hall space. Running time is approximately 1 hour.
"Warmly and fuzzily recommended."
