The Greatest Liar in all the World - Edinburgh Previews

Hi all,

Familia de la Noche are previewing our Edinburgh show The Greatest Liar in all the World next Wednesday 23rd July at Pontardawe Arts Centre before taking it up to the Pleasance Courtyard this summer. A bit about the show:

Familia de la Noche return with their five star darkly funny sequel to Pinocchio, filled with live music, puppetry, physical theatre and clowning. 

‘What it would be like to stroll through the inside of Tim Burton's and Terry Gilliam's minds’ (

Following the story of The Liar, a washed up, world weary, two bit mentalist act who has reached the end of the line and threatens to end it all with his greatest act – the One Inch Bullet Catch. In an attempt to save his life his motley crew of glamorous (and not so glamorous) assistants send the audience careering through the real story behind his infamous origins. 

“Brilliantly bizarre, fiendish and very funny this is one magical nightmare that you’ll never want to wake up from. Pure brilliance.” Edinburgh Guide
