The King of Lies

It is said that we are all born accompanied by 7 lies and 7 locusts… The King of Syria – obsessed with deception – has prepared a lying contest in his court, and year after year he cuts off the head of anyone who fails to tell him a new lie. With the piles of severed heads growing, Clare Murphy enters the fray to do and undo this cruel enchanted power play. (Inspired by Rafik Schami’s book, ‘Damascus Nights’)
