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

Quotes & Highlights
“[A] fierce, perplexing work … rich with striking verbal images and sharp cultural references.” —_Chicago Reader _
“One very unusual love story.” —The Stage
“Plot and dialogue are extremely baroque … while the action mixes Sam Shepard-style cowboy mythology with the sort of oddball twists the Coen brothers specialise in.” —Time Out London
Sometimes falling in love isn’t beautiful–it can just be a mess. When the mysterious Tanner Hicks intercepts a discerning waitress love tries to buck them off. Facts start piling up to show that Tanner’s past is not what it seems.

This poetic and humorous West Coast premiere is an eccentric love story frothing with energy.
