Adapted by David Ives
Based on Le Menteur by Pierre Corneille
Mistaken identities, secrets, and blatant lies all play a role in this Restoration comedy. Dorante is incapable of telling the truth. Clinton is incapable of telling a lie. They are both in pursuit of women, who may or may not be who they think they are. All of these lies and misunderstandings eventually collide, leaving our heroes to navigate a tangled web of lies.
