The Truth Game

  • This event has passed.

Vanessa Nicolson

Saturday 13th October 18:45 - 19:45 | Northwood House

As a teenager Vanessa Nicolson plays a game with her father: they take turns to ask a question and the other must answer truthfully. One day Vanessa asks: ‘Apart from Mummy, have you ever been so in love that you would have liked to marry someone else?’ Her father is visibly shaken and as the truth emerges it becomes clear why… Told as a series of fourteen lucid vignettes in an original way, The Truth Game is both a haunting exploration of love, loss and grief and a portrait of the discontent at the heart of one of Britain’s most eminent families, the Sackville-Wests. Vanessa distils the concept of truth down to the extraordinary experiences of real-life individuals with moving consequences.  The Truth Game is the stunning companion to the highly acclaimed Have You Been Good?.
