A Madcap Farce

By David Ives

Directed By Merritt Olsen

A sweet, small town boy with big ambition has but one single flaw; he can’t tell the truth. He hires a servant who can’t tell a lie, falls for a girl engaged to his best friend, and…things get complicated. Misunderstandings and breathtakingly intricate lies abound in this tour-de-force comedy of errors.
