The Lies by Degna Stone

The Lies by Degna Stone

We’re all complicit, so when are you going to stop lying to yourself?

Degna Stone & Alphabetti Theatre present the world premiere of
The Lies by Degna Stone

24th May – 3rd June 2023 (excluding Sundays,Mondays & 1st June)

Alphabetti Theatre is proud to announce the opening of The Lies, a theatrical debut from Degna Stone that promises to be a night to remember.

The Lies is a captivating production that questions the lies we tell our children, ourselves, and the lies told to us.

We’ve been lying to ourselves forever. We create mythical beings to shield our children from the dark realities of life – the Easter Bunny, Santa, the Tooth Fairy – but was it ever about the magic of childhood? Or was it always just a form of control?

The people you thought would never lie to you have been lying all along. Everything you thought was true is open to interpretation. Words matter but language shifts and meanings change all the time…How do you even begin a conversation with someone who believes a different theory of truth?

Directed by Matt Jamie, The Lies features Luca Rutherford and Degna Stone uncovering the lies that have seeped into everyday life, and the lies we try to convince ourselves are true. The creative team behind the production has put together a stunning experience that will leave you questioning yourself and others around you.

Join The Liar as she unravels how we fell into the trap of accepting lies as part of everyday life. From the little white lies we tell our children to the great big whoppers we tell ourselves about who we are as a nation.

Tickets for The Lies are now on sale and can be purchased online at or by calling 0191 261 9125. Don’t miss your chance to experience this unforgettable production!

Praise for Degna’s previous work:
“What a joy, at last, to hold Degna Stone’s debut. They are a spellbinding poet: passionate, political and precise. Their poems lay bare the human heart and what it means to love and be loved in a world full of trouble. Unafraid of the ragged seams of life, they hold us, all our sorrows and failings, with the deepest compassion, urging us to be bold, take the risk and make the world better.” – Liz Berry on Proof of Life on Earth, 2022
’A sharply written meditation on age,race and fear’ – The Stage on Probably, 2019
