Live Theater in the Berkshires — February and March 2013
FEBRUARY 4 – MARCH 24 at SHAKESPEARE & CO
Walking distance from Brook Farm Inn, our Lenox B&B
adapted from the comedy
by Pierre Corneille
A tangled web of lies, misdirected advances, and the unmistakable confusion of love, The Liar has all of the ingredients that make for a great French farce.
The truth will set most people free, but for Dorante (our disingenuous hero), a sequence of fibs may pave a convoluted road to happiness. A hilarious farce about mistaken identity, The Liar was originally penned by the classic 17th-century French playwright Pierre Corneille, in 1664. This adaptation by award-winning American playwright David Ives merges the iambic humor of classic verse with a contemporary twist.
