The School for Lies

The School for Lies

Presented by The University of Utah Department of Theatre at Studio 115

In 1666, the brightest, wittiest salon in Paris is that of Celimene, a beautiful young widow so known for her satiric tongue she’s being sued for it. Surrounded by shallow suitors, Celimene has managed to evade love since her beloved husband died—until today, when Frank appears. Frank turns her world upside-down, taking on her suitors and matching her barb for barb. Will their battle of wits in this hilarious tug-of-war blossom into true love?  Rambunctious, sexy and snide, Tony Award-nominated David Ives’ fills his deliciously off-color romantic spoof with anonymous love letters, false proposals, hidden identities, and colorful characters. This wild farce with a furious tempo and stunning verbal display, all in contemporary couplets, will keep you laughing all the way home.
