Have you ever told a lie? How bad was it? And how far would you go to keep it a secret?

After sell-out runs at Dublin Fringe and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Tom Moran brings his critically acclaimed show to the Abbey Theatre.

Brimming with compassion and humour, Tom has secrets to share and a future to fix. A self-proclaimed people-pleaser and an expert in empathy, Tom really struggles with the truth. Join him for this hilarious but completely true solo show where he begs the question: “If I never lied again and was just myself, would any of my loved ones still love me?”
