Pack Of Lies (theatre)

Seaford Little Theatre really are showing their versatility this year and their third play is to be the Cold War suburban spy drama Pack Of Lies. Written by Hugh Whitemore and first performed in 1983, the play is set in early 1960s London and is based on a true story. It first ran at London's Lyric Theatre for nearly a year starring Judi Dench who won a Laurence Olivier award for Best Actress for her role as Barbara Jackson.

The Seaford production has been directed by Ian Clegg. The cast is Alan Lade (The Cemetery Club), Tricia Pape, Kimberley Payne, Sandra Haynes, David Parton, Roland Boorman (The Titfield Thunderbolt), Lindsey Holledge and Josie Hobbs. Set design is again by Alan Lade so it should be pretty fantastic.

An unassuming suburban couple, Bob and Barbara Jackson, live with their teenage daughter in a Ruislip. They are friendly with their next-door neighbours, Peter and Helen Kroger. However the Jackson's comfortable world is turned upside-down when their neighbours are unexpectedly arrested and revealed to be Russian spies, part of an intelligence ring which infiltrated the Royal Navy!
