A Lie

Monday 16 May

We lie on average three times in the first ten minutes of every social interaction; the news is not true, not even our memories are fact. Beard’s performance questions whether lying is our most impressive art and possibly our most human need. Francesca Beard ‘the Queen of British Performance Poetry’ is a Malaysian-born London-based poet who has performed to rave reviews around the UK and internationally.
