Contemporary slang meets 17th-century farce in The School for Lies. Adapted from Molière's The Misanthrope, playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur, All in the Timing) transforms Molière's classic into a modern satire told entirely through verse. The result is a delightfully incongruous comedy of manners that lets you peer inside the Parisian salon of Celimene, a young widow with a sharp tongue and plenty of suitors. Teresa Thuman and Ken Michels co-direct this Center Theatre production, in which a saucy siren finally meets her misanthropic match. Learn More

This was our first time at SecondStory; it is a nice theater, in a great location. Irma Vep is a fabulous play, requiring intricate timing and skilled actors. It was too ambitious a production for this company. The actors, who both tried very hard, dragged the play down. Perhaps with a less demanding play the company would be worth a second visit.
