Adapted from Molires The Misanthrope, David Ivess The School for Lies tells the comic tale of Frank, who shares with Molires Alceste a venomous hatred of the hypocrisy that surrounds him. Like his predecessor, Frank gets into trouble for insulting the work of a dreadful poet and falls in love with Celimene, a witty widow. In Ivess madcap version, however, Celimene returns Franks affection because she wrongly believes him to be King Louis XIVs bastard brother. Borrowing from Shakespeare, reality TV, and everything in between, The School for Lies is an inspired entertainment as well as a pointed study in self-delusion, all rendered in sparkling couplets.
