Adapted by David Ives
From the comedy by Pierre Corneille
directed by Michael Kahn
April 6-May 29
Lansburgh Theatre
Washington, DC

“All the world’s a lie, and all the men and women merely liars.”
Dorante is charming, handsome … and a pathological liar! When he arrives in Paris, Dorante’s outlandish tales amaze and convince all who hear them, but for each problem his clever lying solves, it creates two new ones. Will he manage to keep his stories straight, his dupes none the wiser and somehow still get the girl? This joyful French farce bursts onto the stage in Broadway playwright David Ives’ sparkling new adaptation. Michael Kahn brings his brilliant touch to this one-of-a-kind comedy.
