The makers of The Hamilton Complex return with a new UK première direct from Antwerp, in a new co-commission with the Unicorn. 

In Truth or Dare, Lies Pauwels brings together seven real young adults who all have psychological vulnerabilities, three real super-models and a priest. Together, we explore the demons we wrestle with, as individuals and as a world.

Lies Pauwels' work is challenging, perceptive and authentic. In this piece, she pushes the boundaries of truth just that little bit further, creating a world in which nothing is obvious, yet everything is recognisable. This show is energising, complex and exciting experimental theatre.

In Dutch with English surtitles.

Please note, latecomers may not be admitted to the show.
