A new play by acclaimed performer and former rock star Ellen Waddell, who brought the London premiere of her award-winning one-woman show 'Jean-Luc Picard and Me' to The Canvas Cafe in 2015.

We lie to our friends, family, lovers and bosses because it’s easier than the truth - we have no idea what we’re doing, and we might have genital warts. In her new show former rock star and acclaimed performer Ellen Waddell (‘Jean-Luc Picard and Me’) tackles the necessity of lying in life, love, friendship and when applying for administrative jobs at truck logistics companies.


Starring Ellen and a Chair.




Presented as part of Tellit: The UK's First Ever Festival of True-Life Storytelling. Featuring acclaimed true-life storytellers, autobiographical poets and the best up-and-coming spoken word artists.  For full programme information click here
