Henry seems a little on edge. He is a man with a mission to tell us something we don’t already know.
But who is Henry and why does he have such a compulsive aversion to the truth?!
HERE LIES HENRY challenges the conventional relationship between actor and audience and spins it completely on its head in a powerful exploration of purpose and humanity.
Provocative and uncompromising, this compelling comedy/drama about life, love, lies and the body in the next room is as elusive as it is enlightening and as profound as it is laugh-out-loud funny.
Henry is a great big tease and definitely the one to see.
“HERE LIES HENRY throws out the rule book on what defines theatre and how it must be made.”
“Matthew Hyde manages to flawlessly deliver an exceedingly complex text that is riveting from start to finish. Not to mention nuanced. Without a doubt, even with several months of unseen acting to come, his must stand as one of the best showings of 2012”
“In the crowded hit-and-miss of this year’s Sydney Fringe Festival program, here’s a show one you can bank on.”
