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

Both delightfully true--the kids are recognizable--and convincingly creepy. What is most true is how it illuminates how kids see, but also work through potent ideas of their parents. I am not sure about the Tweets, though--was that reference meant. Overall a play not to be missed, as it will be shown in New York and elsewhere, and probably put on by more ambitious youth theaters.
