Wellesley Repertory Theatre presents: The Liar
Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth.
In quick succession he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie, and falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend Lucrece.
From these, plus more misunderstandings and a series of breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world’s greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All In The Timing’s David Ives.
'An effervescent delight.
Cheeky...bawdy...romantic' and full of 'smiling exuberance.' NY Times.
Reuniting much of the cast of the multiple IRNE award-nominated Three Sisters, director Marta Rainer is: 'thrilled to offer Wellesley Rep audiences a masterful symphony of flim-flam, combated skillfully by savvy Parisian women in cotton candy-colored wigs!
The truth is, we all need a laugh.
We are so grateful to be able to dance with The Liar's deliciously silly text, which invites us to do exactly that.'
WRT is proud to bring this story to life together with critically acclaimed company members: Angela Bilkic, Danny Bolton, Caitlin Graham, Charles Linshaw, John Kinsherf, Ariela Nazar-Rosen, Dan Prior, Samuel Warton and the design team; David Towlun (Set Design), Chelsea Kerl (Costume Design), and George Cooke (Sound Design).
