THE FALLS

by Hilary Bell

Sydney, 1895. Meet three Great Liars: Alberta the polygamist; Jack and his plans to hoodwink the world with an outrageous hoax; and Alberta's long-lost sister Nellie, a would-be memoirist. There is also Praise-God, the bathchair-ridden, mute, bearded six-year-old. There's melancholic Pigeon, reborn through the conviction of Jack's lie. And there's Doctor Rachel Sylvester, seduced by Alberta, little knowing the truth about her...

The Falls is a Victorian melodrama, part-musical, part-ghost story, part-love story, an exploration of deceit and self-delusion. The Falls asks, "If a lie brings happiness, is it not preferable to the truth?"
