''Tom brings truth, skill, and art together to examine Ireland now, specifically Irish people, our hidden selves and our capacity for change'' Caitríona McLaughlin, Artistic Director of the Abbey Theatre

Following sell-out shows at the Dublin Fringe, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Abbey Theatre, Tom Moran’s critically acclaimed show is now on national tour.

A self-proclaimed people-pleaser and an expert in empathy, Tom really struggles with the truth. Full of compassion and humour, he explores identity, family dynamics and having a very flexible relationship to the truth in contemporary Ireland.

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?”
