Albright College’s Domino Players to Present ‘The Liar’ by David Ives

March 28, 2018

Adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille

Albright College’s Domino Players will present The Liar by David Ives, adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille, April 12-15, in Albright’s Wachovia Theatre. The production is directed by Julia Matthews, Ph.D., associate professor of theatre.

“All the world’s a lie, and all the men and women merely liars,” so says Dorante, the charming young lawyer who can’t open his mouth without telling another whopper. Dorante quickly sets his romantic sights on the beautiful Clarice, or maybe it’s her best friend Lucrece. Which one is which? And which one is secretly engaged to his best friend? Falsehoods fly in this sparkling French comedy by Corneille, newly adapted by David Ives.

Additional performance-related events for The Liar include:

  • April 12: A talkback and reception will follow the performance.
  • April 13: Albright improv show follows the performance in Roop Hall.

Performances of The Liar will be held Thursday through Saturday, April 12-14, at 8 p.m., and on Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m. For prices and tickets, call the box office at 610-921-7547 or visit www.albright.edu/centerforthearts.
