The Greatest Liar in all the World Familia de la Noche The story of The Liar, a world-weary musichall hypnotist who has reached the end of his tether and threatens to end it all. His company of glamorous and not so-glamorous assistants distract him from his imminent demise and convince him to tell the story of his infamous origins. Familia de la Noche’s hilarious mix of clowning, puppetry, music and shadow play tells a story of extraordinary encounters, curious characters and lost love. Based on the story of Pinocchio, The Greatest Liar in all the World takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride through the life of the man who used to be a little wooden boy. “Every now and then, you come across a play that seems to ignore the lines between children’s and adults’ theatre, comedy and tragedy, circus act and bare monologue to convey the sublime itself. Familia de la Noche’s The Greatest Liar in All the World is not that play. It’s funnier.” ***** The Skinny Familia de la Noche is an award-winning theatre company.
