The full cast joining Finty Williams and Jasper Britton in a revival of Hugh Whitemore’s Pack of Lies at the Menier Chocolate Factory has been announced. When it premiered in the ‘80s, Pack of Lies starred husband and wife Judi Dench and Michael Williams as Ruth and Bill Search who find themselves at the centre of an investigation into the Portland Soviet spy ring with their daughter Gay Search. Directed by Hannah Chissick, Dench and Williams’ daughter Finty Williams will play Ruth, while Britton plays Bill.

The Jacksons are a nice middle aged English couple. Their best friends are the Krogers, their Canadian neighbours. All is blissful in their world until a detective from Scotland Yard asks to use their house as an observation station to foil a Soviet spy ring operating in the area. They are really put to the test when the detective asks them to help set a trap. Should they betray their friends… Or their country? This play is based on a true story.
