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. Dublin born Clare is famed for her playful wit and compelling physical presence. A featured teller for the Crick Crack Club, tells stories worldwide. This ‘love story for Syria’ is inspired by Rafik Schami’s book, ‘Damascus Nights’.
