Fresh from a successful world premiere at the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C., David Ives’ vivacious adaptation of Corneille’s 17th comedy delights with linguistic wit and slapstick style. When the new man-about-town is a compulsive liar and his honest sidekick cannot tell a lie, mayhem and misunderstanding ensue in affairs of the heart. Recently Ives won a 2010 MacArthur Award for this rollicking farce.
