Truth’s a Dog Must to Kennel

The Fool leaves King Lear before the blinding. Before the ice-creams in the interval.

In this extraordinary new solo work, Tim Crouch draws on ideas of virtual reality to send the character back to the wreckage of the world they left.

Truth’s a Dog Must to Kennel switches between scathing stand-up and an audacious act of collective imagining. It’s a celebration of live performance and a skewering of the state we’re in now.
