The Lie follows Alice, who sees her friend’s husband with another woman and must contemplate telling her friend what she saw—or lie.

Bond has been seen on Broadway in Amy’s View, for which she received a Tony nomination. The actor is best known for her recurring role of Lady Rosamund Painswick on Downtown Abbey.

The production will feature set design by Anna Fleischle, costumes by Loren Elstein, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Gregory Clarke, and original music by Isobel Waller-Bridge. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
