Product Description "All the world s a lie, and all the men and women merely liars." PLAY SYNOPSIS Dorante is charming, handsome, and a pathological liar! When he arrives in Paris, Dorante's outlandish tales amaze and convince all who hear them, but for each problem his clever lying solves, it creates two new ones. Will he manage to keep his stories straight, his dupes none the wiser and somehow still get the girl? This joyful French farce bursts onto the stage in Broadway playwright David Ives'sparkling new adaptation. "The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, as refracted in a theatrical fun-house mirror. Welcome to The Liar." --- David Ives SELLING POINTS The book features: - Fresh, new adaptation of Corneille's The Liar by Broadway playwright, David Ives - A short history of the Shakespeare Theatre Company and the ReDiscovery Series by Artistic Director Michael Kahn - Fascinating essay, The Whole Truth About The Liar, by David Ives - Short biography of Pierre Corneille -Corneille in a Minute: a 30-entry chronology placing Corneille in context to the world around him -Original production information including cast list -Commissioned and first performed by the Shakespeare Theatre Company at the Lansburgh Theatre in Washington D.C., opening April 12, 2010 under the direction of Michael Kahn. About the Author David ives is probably best known for his evenings of one-act plays called All in the Timing and Time Flies. Recent shows include New Jerusalem: The Interrogation of Baruch de Spinoza; Irving Berlin s White Christmas; Is He Dead? (adapted from Mark Twain); and Venus in Fur. He is the author of three young-adult novels, Monsieur Eel, Scrib, and Voss. He is a graduate of Yale School of Drama and a former Guggenheim Fellow in playwriting.

Corneille is a part of the greatest period of French drama. His artistic model and theory of the drama were to be followed by successive generations of dramatists, including Racine. His plays deal with noble characters in closely defined situations of high moral intensity. After modest success as a writer of complex, baroque comedies, Corneille achieved fame with Le Cid (1636--37), adapted from Guillen de Castro's three-day comedy Las Moceddes del Cid. It vividly represents the dominant theme of his tragedies: the inner struggle between duty and passion. Corneille went on to dominate the French theater of his day with plays that reflect the changing relationships between the aristocracy and the new absolutist state. Some of Corneille's other major tragedies include Horace (1640), Cinna (1640), and Polyeuctus (1643). In his shaping of language and form to his dramatic purposes, Corneille had a great effect on the development of French literature; more specifically, it can be said that he gave form and aim to French neoclassicism.
