Pack of Lies
By Hugh Whitemore
Directed by Kim Wright
How well do you know your neighbours, your close friends? What if MI5 asked you if they could use your home to spy on them?
Based on a true story of spies in suburbia in the 1960s, the play show us how a happy family is affected by the intrusion of MI5, who make what seems like a straightforward request to use their home as a base for a covert operation to watch their neighbours.
The play opens out into a story that questions loyalty to friends and country, involving deceptions large and small and their impact on people, then how increasingly difficult people find it is to maintain a deceit that is alien to them.
To all members and supporters of the Wharf Theatre:
The Theatre is run entirely by volunteers and, if you don't fancy acting on stage, there are always lots of opportunities for you to help out with vital and rewarding responsibilities off the stage, both behind the scenes and in the Front of House. Each performance requires normally around eleven volunteers to help run the box office, bar and refreshments, manage the stage, props and actors, run the lighting and sound effects required and carry out the essential duties of perfomance licencee. In addition, there are numerous opportunites to help design, build and decorate sets, as well as to compose publicity material and help with the distribution and management of publicity material (including the content of this website).
If you enjoy theatre but do not want to appear on stage, why not double your enjoyment by joining one of our off-stage teams to help provide critical supporting skills that the Theatre needs. Training is provided for these responsibilities, and you will not only meet similarly enthusiastic people but also become a valuable part of the Theatre family.
You do not need to be a member to come and have a look and to try out these tasks, although if you wish to pursue technical and back-stage work for productions you will ultimately require membership. To find out more, please e-mail the Chairman or any of the Management team via the Contacts page.
