For audiences who love wit, wordplay, and savvy reinvention of the classics comes THE LIAR: a sparkling urban romance, reinvented by David Ives with contemporary flair. Ives’ “translaptation” of Pierre Corneille’s 17th-century comedy follows Dorante, a young Frenchman and pathological liar whose outlandish stories become the talk of the capital, but for every problem he solves with his deception, he creates two new ones in its place. What is truth in an urban landscape of rumor, innuendo, and the formidable power of a fabulous story?
