BUY TICKETS NOW: The School for Lies

It's 1666 and the brightest, wittiest salon in Paris is that of Celimene, a beautiful young widow so known for her satiric tongue she's being sued for it. Surrounded by shallow suitors, Celimene has managed to evade love since her beloved husband died - until today, when Frank appears. Known for his own sparkling wit and acidic misanthropy, Frank turns Celimene's world upside-down, taking on her suitors, matching her barb for barb, and teaching her how to live again. This wild farce of furious tempo and stunning verbal display, all in very contemporary couplets, runs variations on Moliere's The Misanthrope, which inspired it.

Friday, April 10th - Saturday, May 9th
Thursday - Saturday evenings at 7:30pm, and Sunday afternoons at 2:00pm
Tickets are $20, Thursday are always PWYW
