Art & Lies : A Piece for Three Voices and a Bawd

Art & Lies : A Piece for Three Voices and a Bawd

Description

'There is no such thing as autobiography, there is only art and lies'.

Set in a London of the near future, its three principal characters, Handel, Picasso and Sappho, separately flee the city and find themselves on the same train, drawn to one another through the curious agency of a book.

Stories within stories take us through the unlikely love-affairs of one Doll Sneerpiece, an 18th century bawd, and into the world of painful beauty where language has the power to heal.

Art & Lies is a question and a quest: How shall I live?
