The Liar

The Liar

by David Ives, adapted from Pierre Corneille
Directed by Andrew Paul
July 13 - 30, 2017

Paris, 1643. Dorante, a charming young man newly arrived in the capital in search of a wife, has a little problem with the truth. Even when it serves no discernible purpose, he compulsively and ceaselessly – er, how shall we say it? Makes false statements? Proffers unsubstantiated assertions? Presents alternative facts?

Through a series of misunderstandings and breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world’s greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All In the Timing’s David Ives.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

David Ives was born in Chicago in 1950 and educated at Northwestern University and Yale School of Drama. A 1995 Guggenheim Fellow in playwriting, he is probably best known for his evening of one-act comedies called All in the Timing, which ran for over 600 performances off-Broadway and was subsequently presented in many cities here and abroad. The show won the Outer Critics Circle Playwriting Award, was included in “The Best Plays of 1993-94,” and in the 1995-96 season was the most-performed play in the country after Shakespeare productions. It has been translated into German, French, Italian, Brazilian and other languages.
