"The Liar" at Shakespeare and Company

  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.
