The Ram Jam Theatre Company presents its second production The Lying Kind* by Anthony Neilson.
In this unrelentingly hilarious farce set on Christmas Eve, two unfortunate police officers must carry out one last task before they head home: tell an unsuspecting couple that their daughter has been killed on the motorway. Throw in priest, two Carol’s, some presents and a grassroots paedophile hunting vigilante group and it’s just about as festive as very very black comedy can get!
