Don’t get too comfortable when you nestle into your seats for this one-hander starring city actor Murray Farnell as liar Henry Tom Gallery II.

The awkward humour begins before a word is uttered as Gallery struggles with being in the spotlight. He literally sweats over his shaky public speaking skills and his, ahem, issues with his parents. Just mentioning his his father, Henry Tom Gallery I, turns him into a nervous nellie.

Farnell’s rubber-limbed physical ability and his sometimes-queasy interaction with the audience is a highlight early on in this Daniel MacIvor monologue. The intensity ebbs as Henry arrives at its conclusion, though.

— Alan Small

 

From the Fringe program:

FIRE! SEX! MURDER!

...No, that's a lie.

Meet Henry "Tom" Gallery II. A liar.

In a square of light and a flash flood of words, join Henry in a world of lies, love, hope... and the body in the next room.

Daniel MacIvor's award-winning script explores purpose, humanity and the grey area between fiction and reality. Edgy, challenging, and with MacIvor's trademark wit, it will keep you thinking long after the lights go down... and possibly wondering what just happened.
