Storytelling Show: Clare Murphy

  • Mezrab 572 Veemkade Amsterdam, NH, 1019 BL Netherlands (map)


In this solo storytelling performance, Clare Muireann Murphy blends reportage and folklore to tell a story on the power of lying. A king pits his wits against a fool, a lying competition lures in storytellers from around the world, and one poor hungry man tells enough lies in the hopes of saving his skin and that of his people. The King of Lies is an adaptation of the novel Damascus Nights by exiled Syrian writer Rafik Schami. This witty play on words evokes a beautiful country held at the mercy of a lie-obsessed king.
