West Coast Premiere of THE LIAR Plays Marin Shakespeare Company, 8/17-9/23

Marin Shakespeare Company continues its 2012 summer festival season with the West Coast premiere of "The Liar," a new comedy set in the decadent and flamboyant Cavalier period. The award-winning theater company presents a "Pay What You Will" preview performance of the outdoor production at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17. Pay What You Will tickets are sold at the door.

"The Liar" opens officially on Saturday, Aug. 25 and continues with performances to Sept. 23. Visit the Marin Shakespeare Company website at www.marinshakespeare.org for specific performance dates and times.

Robert Currier directs this saucy, fast-paced comedy about a charming young man who upsets Parisian high society with his tall tales of conquest. Actor Darren Bridgett plays the funny fibber in this 17th century romp written by David Ives.

Featuring rhyming couplets, high energy and comic timing, David Ives' clever adaptation of Pierre Corneille's French farce was heralded as "a true comic gem" when commissioned and presented by Washington D.C.'s Shakespeare Theatre in 2010.

The professional, award-winning Marin Shakespeare Company presents its annual Shakespeare festival under the summer stars in its outdoor venue, Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, located on the campus of Dominican University of California in San Rafael, Calif.

The outdoor amphitheater has comfortable bench seating and opens one hour prior to show time for picnicking. Picnics and alcohol are welcome or patrons can purchase snacks at the Theatre Café. Warm clothing, jackets, blankets are recommended for evening performances.

Marin Shakespeare Company features a variety of special events and discounted ticket options including “Pay What You Will” preview and "Pay Your Age" for patrons ages 20 to 35-years old.

For tickets or more information call 415-499-4488 or visit www.marinshakespeare.org.
