"School for Lies" at Shakespeare Theatre Company

Sunday, June 18 at 2 p.m. (signup deadline was 3 pm, May 31)
Shakespeare Theatre at the Lansburgh, 450 Seventh St. NW

From the comic imagination of STC favorite David Ives comes a Baroque buffet. Alceste, Molière’s ruthless French truth-teller, becomes Frank, an aristocrat who despises hypocrisy—and, frankly, doesn’t mind telling you so. His chief delight a well-aimed barb, Frank wreaks havoc in a world of pompous suitors and extravagant ladies, hurling abuse and affection with equal gusto as he vies with admirers for his beloved Celimene.

Tony Award®-nominee David Ives and STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn, the team that created the award-winning French “trilogy" of "The Liar," "The Heir Apparent" and "The Metromaniacs," return to old stomping grounds in this uproarious update of one of the greatest masterpieces of French comedy. Outrageous gags and vicious couplets strike a hilarious balance of class and crass in this classic collision of Molière’s biting satire and Ives’s modern wit.
