About this show

He's just not that interested in being honest… Hours after arriving in Paris, the charismatic Dorante is smitten by a pair of comely young ladies and confounded by a case of mistaken identity. Not to worry, this scoundrel is handsome, charming--and a pathological liar. He wins admirers wherever he goes…so long as he never has to tell the truth! Misunderstandings, secret agendas, and witty wordplay abound in this delightfully ingenious and irreverent update of a classic French romp. Writers' Theatre favorite William Brown directs this costume comedy in verse, newly adapted from the classic Corneille by modern wordsmith and celebrated Broadway playwright David Ives.
