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

The story begins with Brian reading the opening narrative of his umpteenth production of A Christmas Carol, when Justin and Nick start to rebel. “Don’t get me wrong, Christmas Carol’s a great story. Fezziwig, redemption, God bless us everyone, Nice ghost, Fat ghost, Scary ghost … but honestly, I’m just doing this ‘cause I need the insurance.” Reluctantly, Brian follows along as the actors launch themselves, and the audience, into a full-scale re-examination of all shows holiday, from Rudolph (with a slight adjustment for copyright issues) to It’s a Wonderful Life (in a second-act mash up that will blow your mind). Traditions from around the world (some more questionable than others) and a finale that includes “Every Carol Ever Sung,” will leave you fully holiday-satisfied, with nothing left to do but wrap those presents and drink that nog.
