The Liar

2936 N. Southport Ave. , Chicago, IL, 60657 | directions
(773) 935-6875
by David Ives
directed by Artistic Associate Ed Rutherford

In his adaptation, David Ives has updated Corneille’s language in a version that scintillates with comedic wit. The Liar tells the story of Dorante, a young man newly arrived in Paris who wastes no time beginning his search for love and adventure, primarily through the spinning of extremely tall tales. As his tangled web of deception gets more and more complex and difficult to maintain, Ives uses Corneille’s text to explore the layers of seeming and identity that we weave around ourselves to get through the day.
