And that's the moment when I leave.
The moment when the jokes fail us. When I fail. I fail.
This precise moment here, look, see with your ears.

The Fool leaves King Lear before the blinding

Before the killing starts

Before the ice-creams in the interval

In his new solo work, playwright Tim Crouch draws on ideas of virtual reality to send the Fool back to the future of the play that he left

Back to a world without moral leadership or integrity

A world where wealth covers vice

Where the poor are dehumanised

Where the jokes fall flat

Where live art has become the privilege of the few

Truth's a Dog Must to Kennel is a daringly unaccommodating piece of theatre that switches between scathingly funny stand-up and an audacious act of collective imagining

King Lear meets stand-up meets the metaverse

This edition was published to coincide with the production at The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh in August 2022.
