2013 Season

The Liar (2013)

October 3 – December 1, 2013

Written by: David Ives, From the Comedy by Pierre Corneille
Directed by: Casey Stangl

Casey Stangl directs David Ives’ wicked “translaptation” (according to Ives, “a translation with a heavy dose of adaptation”) of Pierre Corneille’s farce that asks whether truth matters at all in an age obsessed with the surface of things. When the charming and handsome pathological liar Dorante enters Paris, he impresses everyone who hears his stories. But as his lies multiply, will Dorante be able to keep them straight and still manage to get the girl.
