ENSEMBLE THEATRE COMPANY is thrilled to announce the first show of its 40th Anniversary 2018-2019 Season, the deliciously hilarious THE SCHOOL FOR LIES, written by David Ives (the playwright of ETC's wildly popular 2013 production of The Liar) and directed by Jonathan Fox. THE SCHOOL FOR LIES begins previews on Thursday, October 4, opens on Saturday, October 6, and runs through Sunday, October 21, 2018 at The New Vic, 33 W. Victoria Street in Santa Barbara.

A side-splitting, freewheeling adaptation in rhyming verse of Molie?re's classic comedy The Misanthrope, from the author who wrote The Liar, Venus in Fur, and All in the Timing. It's 1666, and Frank, a caustic and crabby guy who despises social niceties, falls for Celimene, a beautiful young widow and dazzling social butterfly.

"Is there a better way to start our 40th season than to bring another play to our subscribers and audiences from David Ives, writer of our smash-hit productions of The Liar and Venus in Fur?" said Ensemble Theatre Company Artistic Director Jonathan Fox. "I am also delighted that three of the actors from our audience favorite The Liar will be returning to ETC to perform in this production. Get ready for an uproarious evening that will start our season off on a joyous note."
