The School for Lies


Description:

From the comic imagination of STC favorite, David Ives, comes a timely take on Molière’s ruthless satire. A gleeful truth-teller, Frank is a French aristocrat who despises his society of liars and doesn’t mind telling them so. Frank’s well-aimed barbs wreak havoc in a world of pompous suitors and extravagant ladies, until rumors ricochet and alternative facts become reality. Tony Award-nominee David Ives and STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn, return to old stomping grounds in this uproarious update of one of the greatest masterpieces of French comedy. Outrageous gags and vicious couplets strike a hilarious balance of class and crass in this classic collision of Molière’s biting satire and Ives’s modern wit.
