Event Description

The Liar by David Ives

Directed by Nic McMinn

SYNOPSIS

Enter Dorante, a charmer who cannot tell the truth, into 17th century Paris, looking for action. With his servant (who cannot tell a lie) in tow, Dorante falls madly in love with Clarice… thinking her name is Lucrece. Our lying hero is unaware that Clarice is already engaged, the real Lucrece is in love with him, and twin maids are causing trouble everywhere…all while his father is trying to marry him off to somebody, ANYBODY. Join us in a riot of rhyme, dance, and the triumph of true love. David Ives’ spritely adaptation of Pierre Corneille’s classic farce The Liar is a bright, modern romp through lies, love, and the ultimately silly lives we live.
