The University of Manitoba's Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture Presents

THE KING OF LIES: Stories from Syria
Clare Murphy's One-woman Storytelling Show

The King of Syria, obsessed with deception, hosts a lying contest in his court and every year chops off the head of anyone who fails to tell him a new lie. With the piles of severed heads growing, perhaps only a storyteller can stop the King.
