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.

The first one-person show to be performed in the UK Houses of Parliament, Marlon Solomon’s Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard’s Tale is a piece of documentary theatre which tells the often bizarre and sometimes terrifying story of Marlon’s year-long journey through the conspiracy underworld after he found out that some people he knew didn’t believe the Holocaust happened. Marlon explores why conspiracy theories are more popular than ever; examining how fake news gives fresh currency to ancient slander and how this all relates to recent issues in mainstream politics, including the Labour Party. Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard’s Tale is a one man, multi-media piece of storytelling; it’s a comic tale which is no laughing matter.

Marlon has been invited to perform A Lizard’s Tale at a number of unusual places including The Houses of Parliament, The Labour Conference, NUS Conference and The Holocaust Education Trust Conference, whose audience included survivors. The show has also generated political discussion in The Guardian, The New Statesman, Prospect Magazine and Channel 4 News.

In 2020, Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard’s Tale is embarked on its first UK national theatre tour as well as a run in Australian at the Adelaide Fringe. Unfortunately the UK tour was cut short due to Covid but the show is back up and running for a 2021 Summer/Autumn tour.
