The play takes place in a suburb of London during the autumn and winter of 1960-61.
The main events of the story are true.
In 1961, Peter and Helen Kroger, two Americans living in a London suburb, were convicted of spying for the Russians and sentenced to twenty years’ imprisonment. From these true facts Hugh Whitemore has written a powerfully moving fictional account of the events leading up to their arrest with the action centred on the totally unsuspecting Jackson household – Bob, Barbara and their daughter Julie.
Pack of Lies was first seen in London at the Lyric Theatre in 1983 starring Judi Dench and Michael Williams.
