This play is based on a true story.


The Jacksons are a nice middle aged English couple. Their best friends are the Krogers, their Canadian neighbours. All is blissful in their world until a detective from Scotland Yard asks to use their house as an observation station to foil a Soviet spy ring operating in the area. They are really put to the test when the detective asks them to help set a trap. Should they betray their friends… Or their country?

Critic reviews

Hugh Whitemore's classic suburban thriller is revived at the Menier


Finty Williams and Chris Larkin give performances of unflagging strength

Evening Standard

Finty Williams excels in the role first played by her mother, Judi Dench, in Hugh Whitemore’s slow-burning spy story

The Guardian

Affecting, well acted revival of workmanlike drama of friendship, falsehood and espionage

The Stage

The late Hugh Whitemore’s moving domestic spy drama

Time Out

There's no doubt that Pack of Lies is a dated play, but Chissick's production is funny and has a whole lot of heart

Broadway World
