What is Lie Low about?

“I was broken into a year ago and I was struggling for a bit afterwards. I’m fine now though.”

In the wake of a home invasion, Faye can’t sleep. She’s fine though.

All she’s had to eat this week is a box of dry Rice Krispies. She’s fine though, really – she is…  

Desperate to shake her insomnia, Faye enlists the help of her brother, Naoise, to try a form of exposure therapy. But Naoise has a devastating secret that’s about to come to light. 

Lie Low is a dark new play from writer Ciara Elizabeth Smyth and director Oisín Kearney, about fear, trauma and family. It offers a theatrical exploration into the human brain and its response to sexual assault.
