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

It was great to see a Shakespeare play I had never seen. The Seattle Shakespeare Company does an excellent job with all the productions we have seen.
Bred for the battlefield, the triumphant soldier Coriolanus discovers he is out of his depths when elected to the Roman Senate where the politics can be twice as treacherous as warfare. Behind his meteoric rise is his powerful mother who raised him to be a warrior of no equal. Shakespeare makes politics personal in this tragedy by plumbing the depths of emotions between mother and son, pride and patriotism, ego and honor.
