"The unimagined life is not worth living!” So proclaims the charismatic and incurable trickster in David Ives’ adaptation of the rollicking 17th century comedy in verse, The Liar. A handsome but incorrigible liar, Dorante, comes to Paris seeking love and pleasure, which he finds in the beautiful Clarice, whose name he mistakes for that of her best friend, Lucrece. After lying his way into a world of chaos, will he be able to use those same cunning tricks to get out of trouble? With mistaken identities, jealous rivals, clever servants, demanding parents, and confused friends, this ingenious and playful update of the classic French romp will fill you with laughter, delight, and rhyme!
