The Liar, a wild, effervescent and entertaining romp of a play, will be produced by the Theatre Arts Department in November. According to playwright, David Ives, The Liar explores “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, as refracted in a theatrical fun-house mirror” and is what he calls a “translaptation” of Corneille’s 17th century comedy of the same name (Ives defines translaptation as “a translation with a heavy dose of adaptation”) . The play is packed with: mistaken identities, serial lying, compulsive truth- telling, love tangles , jumbled jealousies, sassiness ,swagger and sagacity--something to engage and amuse everyone--and all in clever, hilarious, rhyming verse.
THE LIAR plays November 14 - 16 and 21 - 23 at 8pm, November 17 and 24 at 2pm.
