BRIGHTON FRINGE PREVIEW: The greatest liar in all the world @ The Warren Main House

May 4, 2017

Familia de la Noche make their Brighton Fringe debut with five star, darkly funny sequel to Pinocchio.

Scene from ‘The Greatest Liar in All the World’ (based on Pinnochio) by Familia de la Noche

The story of The Liar, a broken down, two-bit mentalist act who has reached the end of his tether and threatens to finish 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.

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

The Greatest Liar in all the World comes to Brighton Fringe following two successful 5* runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a short UK tour in 2015 and has been enjoyed by audiences aged 8 to 98.

The Cast includes internationally acclaimed clown Dott Cotton and one armed multi-instrumentalist musician Max Runham alongside award winning actors Rob Cummings, Alex Freeborn and Becca Cox.
