EDUCATION MATINEE – The Liar

The Liar  |  Sept 27 & 28, 2016

By David Ives; Directed by Doug Scholz-Carlson; Adapted from Le Menteur by Pierre Corneille

Recommended Grade Level: 10-12

Setting: Paris, 1643

Topics for Study and Discussion: French Drama, Commedia, Verse Plays, The Elements of Comedy, Adaptation, the French Unities

The Story: Dorante can only lie and his new manservant Cliton can only tell the truth. As this unlikely pair navigates 26 hours of misguided love, mistaken identities and ridiculously delicious rhymed couplets, the surprise of their unexpected past is revealed. Four couples court and confuse and conquer. Your students will love this hilarious romantic comedy of manners reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, but rendered in the rhythm of contemporary rap. This new “translaptation” (adaptation/translation) of Corneille’s French comedy by David Ives will have your students in stitches even as they recognize the elements of French Drama.

Performance Length: 2 ½ Hours (Including intermission)

Location: Park Square’s Proscenium Stage
