Pack of Lies opens Oct. 17 in Mission

Opening Nite Theatre Society kicks off new season with suspenseful tale

Opening Nite Theatre Society begins its new season with Pack of Lies, a suspenseful tale written by Hugh Whitemore.

Pack of Lies is set in 1961 Cold War London and is based on a true story. Barbara and Bob Jackson are a typical middle class English couple living in the suburbs with their teen daughter, Julie. Their quiet, safe and ordinary life turns upside down when an MI5 agent, Stewart, asks to use their home to spy on a neighbour. Stewart suspects one of the Jacksons’ neighbours are selling classified information to the Soviets, and that someone is not who they seem to be. But which neighbour is it?

As the intrigue builds, it becomes apparent the subjects of the investigation are the Jacksons’ best friends. Knowing that their friends could be arrested, Bob and Barbara grapple over how much to cooperate with Stewart, while feeling betrayed.

Pack of Lies runs from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 p.m. from Oct. 17 to Nov. 2. Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.

Tickets to the show are $15 and available at openingnitetheatre.com or by email at openingnitetheatre@hotmail.com, or by phone at 604-826-ONTS.

The theatre is located at 33223 N. Railway Ave.
