The Show:

wellesley repertory theatre logoThe show is entitled The Liar by David Ives. It is adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille.

Marta Rainer directs the play. It begins in Paris, 1643. A charming young man named Dorante has a flaw: he cannot tell the truth. In quick succession, he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie. He then falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend Lucrece.

All the misunderstandings and intricate lies brings comedy and romance. The New York Times stated, “An effervescent delight. Cheeky…bawdy…romantic” and full of “smiling exuberance.” Director Marta Rainer is: “thrilled to offer Wellesley Rep audiences a masterful symphony of flim-flam…we all need a laugh. We are so grateful to be able to dance with The Liar’s deliciously silly text, which invites us to do exactly that.”


WRT is proud to bring this story to life together with critically acclaimed company members: Angela Bilkic, Danny Bolton, Caitlin Graham, and Charles Linshaw. In addition, there is John Kinsherf, Ariela Nazar-Rosen, Dan Prior, Samuel Warton. The design team is David Towlun (Set Design), Chelsea Kerl (Costume Design), and George Cooke (Sound Design). The WRT company has been in residence at Wellesley College since 1998.
