Southwest Shakespeare Presents The School for Lies

May 1, 2024 – May 4, 2024

Southwest Shakespeare Presents: The School for Lies
By David Ives
Inspired by Molière

“The School For Lies is a rom-com for wordsmiths…” (The Washington Post)

It’s 1666 and the brightest, wittiest salon in Paris is that of Célimène, a beautiful young widow so known for her satiric tongue that she’s being sued for it. Surrounded by shallow suitors, whom she lives off of without surrendering to, Célimène has managed to evade love since her beloved husband died — until today when Frank appears. With a cast of colorful characters and a rollercoaster ride of verbal acrobatics and clever word play, this wild farce is sure to leave you laughing out loud.
