Marlon's a Jew. This didn't bother him much until he discovered that some people he knew didn't believe the Holocaust happened. From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man's journey through the conspiracy underworld. 

Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale is a piece of documentary theatre, in 2018 it became the first one-person show to be performed in the Houses of Parliament, it also won Best Spoken Word at Greater Manchester Fringe festival in the same year.

"Funny, moving, at some points deeply disturbing, and provides absolutely essential context for the worst aspects of how we live now." - David Baddiel 

"Shrewd, funny and important." Jonathan Freedland (The Guardian). 

“Compelling, shocking, essential.” - Al Murray  

 “A Lizard’s Tale is a devastating show. Informative, absorbing and very funny. The funniest show about antisemitism on the fringe. Or anywhere I suspect." – David Schneider
