Two performers simultaneously lip-sync one story, one script, and one life.  But only one of them is telling their own true-life story… Part-spoken, part-sung, LipSync is an intensely intimate exploration of living with a life-limiting condition. Created as part of Cumbernauld Theatre’s innovative Invited Guest programme. Real-life stories, real-life theatre. So which one is telling the truth?

A new play about discovery, honesty and the joys of breathing.  Cumbernauld Theatre Company return to Summerhall after winning a Herald Angel for 2017’s sleeper hit, The Gardener.
