What an amazing little chamber musical this was. Great work by the 4 musicians, keeping the piece atmospheric throughout, and by the very talented 2 girls who for me were note perfect. Filled with great songs, this show for me could be picked up by a major producer and have a very successful future life.

A beautifully written exploration of insecurity and love. This show gave me a tingly feeling nothing else has at the fringe, and I've put it down to the exceptional leads and utterly brilliant composition. Seriously next level talent.

The composer and orchestra are absolutely amazing but extremely let down by unimaginative lyrics. Acting was okay.

Lies All The Way Down presents a distinct and intimate experience, departing from traditional musical norms to become a heartfelt testimonial set to music. Shaye Poulton Richards' remarkable talent infuses the narrative with both whimsy and melancholy, while Christy Gilbert and Emily Proudlock's emotive voices add depth to the characters. The live band's intricate music establishes an immediate connection.

The production integrates music throughout, akin to a continuous film soundtrack, accompanying the tale of two co-workers confronting their self-deceptions. While the story remains engaging, the music often takes centre stage due to its exquisite beauty. Although the lyrical aspect occasionally lags behind the musical strength, the production's worth is undeniable, primarily for its musical prowess.

Lies All The Way Down serves as an audacious experiment, defying norms and providing a multi-layered experience. It's a fusion of vulnerability and artistic courage that's worth witnessing, especially for its unique storytelling and captivating melodies.

There’s many new musicals to watch at the Fringe this year but this is a definite must-see production! Led by two amazing performers and an amazing band, the production offers an authentic and slightly sinister look into how we perceive friendships and the power of lies. The music is familiar and yet bursting with originality in every dissonant chord. I can’t wait to see where this production goes next!

What a delightful little gem this show is. An atmospheric chamber musical performed with flair by its two young leads. A show about female friendship, lies and perception, the audience were in for a treat. The compositions are interesting and effective and catchy! The performers are utterly convincing. In addition, some of the most comfortable seats on the fringe. This show epitomises the fringe festival - it is new, it is fresh and it is a gorgeous little vignette. Go and see it!
