David Ives describes Corneille’s effervescent play as “one of the world’s great comedies.” A simple misunderstanding snowballs into a case of mistaken identity and romantic complications ensue in this joyous, playful romp. Corneille wrote The Liar over 350 years ago, and Ives’ adaptation has beautifully translated the crisp wit that delighted French theater-goers into a compelling physical and verbally over-the-top comedy for today’s audiences.
