‘With exemplary honesty Patrick Sandford sheds much needed light on some dark places.’
★★★★ Michael Billington, Guardian

Brighton Festival Fringe 2016 Winner of 3 Awards including Outstanding Theatre and Best of the Festival.

How can a Truth be told?
How can a Secret be spoken?

A betrayed schoolboy, a Japanese soldier, and the inventor of the saxophone. Three gripping narratives show how a story can save your life.

Bold, provocative, theatrical; not for a moment depressing. Audiences are spellbound.

Written and performed by Patrick Sandford.
Directed by Nancy Meckler.

Running Time: 90 mins (60 minute show, 30 minute post-show discussion. No interval)
