'utterly urgent and compelling' ★★★★★ The Scotsman, Fringe First winner 2022

The Fool leaves King Lear before the blinding. Before the ice creams in the interval. This extraordinary new solo work by Brighton playwright Tim Crouch draws on ideas of virtual reality to send the Fool 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 powerful celebration of live performance and a skewering of the state we’re in now. 

Tim Crouch is ‘one of the most important writers and theatre makers in the UK’ (The Stage). He has been associated with Brighton Dome for over 20 years and we are thrilled to have his work in the first full season of our newly refurbished Studio Theatre.

A Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh Production. Written & Performed by Tim Crouch.
