Adapted by David Ives from the play by Pierre Corneille

In his adaptation, David Ives has updated Corneille’s language in a version that scintillates with modern comedic wit. The Liar tells the story of Dorante, a young man newly arrived in Paris who wastes no time beginning his search for love and adventure by spinning extremely tall tales. As his tangled web of deception gets more and more complex and difficult to maintain, joyful chaos ensues. Both trenchant and tremendously funny, Promethean’s production will keep audiences both laughing and thinking.
