Lies & Liars
CREATED WITH THE ENSEMBLE AND WRITTEN BY CASSY SANDERS & MARGOT BORDELON
ABOUT THE PLAY...
What's your biggest lie? What if one file held the truth about every lie anyone's ever told you? This made-from-scratch, multimedia original from the creators of last year's Yes, This Really Happened to Me pulls water cooler politics through the rabbit hole in a world two parts The Office, one part Alice in Wonderland. Welcome to ALCOR, international lie protection agency, where Benny Willard is about to find himself face to face with every lie and liar he's ever met! Let Theatre Seven be your himself face to face with every lie and liar he's ever met! Let Theatre Seven be your guide to a world where nothing can be trusted.

"Theatre Seven of Chicago's world premiere of Lies & Liars stylistically dazzles on just about every level...

Morgan, Windy City Times
"Bordelon and Sanders's direction is handsomely choreographed." - Kris Vire, TimeOut Chicago
"Crisp staging by Margot Bordelon and Cassy Sanders." - Albert Williams, Chicago Reader
“I'd be lying if I said I wasn't completely smitten by "Lies and Liars. A MUST-SEE SHOW" - Anna Pulley, Centerstage
