"The Liar" at Shakespeare and Company

Credit Kevin Sprague

  The Liar was originally penned by the classic 17th Century playwright Pierre Corneille, in 1664. The play as all of the ingredients of a perfect French farce - a tangled web of lies, misdirected advances, and the unmistakable confusion of love.

Shakespeare and Company is producing an adaptation by award-winning American playwright, David Ives, which merges the iambic humor of classic verse with a contemporary twist.

We are joined by director Kevin G. Coleman and actors David Joseph and Alexandra Lincoln.
