A Lie of the Mind

Lie of the Mind

A Lie of the Mind

By Sam Shepard


The human mind is a powerful thing, but at times it’s also a dirty liar….

Childbirth, heartbreak; the greatest pains of our lives never really stay as fresh in our minds as they should because the brain is ultimately wired to protect its host and to forget that which might be harmful. ‘A Lie of the Mind’, a modern classic, is Shepard at his best: a bruising love poem that centres on a brutally abusive married couple.


This is a 4th year production from the Acting and English course at Edinburgh Napier University.
