Michaelmas Week 7
Matilda is a liar. She tells so many lies, even she can’t keep up. But one day, something happens that changes Matilda entirely. She can no longer lie – everything she says is the absolute truth.
But Matilda’s family, held together only by a web of lies, falseness and façades, soon realise that if the lies hurt, the truth could be even worse. Will they be able to live happily ever after? Only one thing will guarantee their fairytale ending – Matilda must be stopped!
This jarring fable is an enthrallingly surreal fairytale for our time, and a grisly warning for anyone who ever thought a little lie wouldn’t hurt. And that’s the truth.
