Dear Liar

Dear Liar was a theatre production by The National Theatre, produced in 1995, and based on the play by Jerome Kilty.

Kilty's text is a comedy of letters, building on the correspondence between the playwright George Bernard Shaw and the actress Mrs. Patrick Campbell (often referred to as Mrs. Pat).

Edith Roger directed it, and Wenche Foss and Toralv Maurstad interpreted the two roles.
