BWW Previews: THE LIAR at Wright State University


Wright State University Theatre brings you the marvelous adaptation by David Ives of Pierre Corneille's riotous comedy, THE LIAR, which runs November 30th - December 9th in the Herbst Theatre.

Dronte, a pathological liar, says whatever he can to get the attention, and the hand of Clarice, a fetching young lady. Oh, but is he smitten with Clarice, or her friend, the shy Lucrece? In the middle of trying to piece that puzzle together, come new complications. Such as Alcippe. Clarice's secret fiancé, and by happenstance, Doronte's old friend. But wait, there's more. Unbeknownst to Doronte, his father, Geronte, is trying to secure a marriage between Doronte and Calrice.

THE LIAR is directed by Josh McCabe, (The Memory of Water and 13 year company actor and senior education artist at Shakespeare and Company). The set is designed by MacKenzie Perin, costumes by Taylor Dumas, lighting by Jera Lauderdale, and sound design by James Dunlap. The dialect coach is Deborah Thomas and fight director is Bruce Cromer.
