Grace Reed, Chairman of Wilmslow Guild Players
receiving The David Lane Cup for Best Actor
on behalf of Jeff Lomax.

Pack of Lies is inspired by the true story of the Krogers, convicted in 1961 of spying for the Russians.

Quiet and totally unsuspecting, the Jackson family live opposite the Krogers and consider them their closest friends.

When an MI5 official arrives suddenly to use the Jackson's house as a surveillance post their decent happy life is shattered as they are plunged into a sordid alien world of deceit and intrigue.

We are delighted that John Powell, the chairman of the Cheshire Theatre Guild, will be guest director for this production.
