The Liar

A Comedy by David Ives, (adapted from Le Menteur by Pierre Corneille)

It’s Paris, 1643. A sweet, small town boy with big ambition has but a 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 then things get complicated. “The Liar” is a tour de force of madcap misunderstandings and breathtakingly intricate lies in this sparkling adaptation from the wordsmith magician, David Ives (All in the Timing and Venus in Furs).
