Adapted from Moliere's "The Misanthrope, "David Ives's "The School for Lies" tells the comic tale of Frank, who shares with Moliere's 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 Ives's madcap version, however, Celimene returns Frank's affection because she wrongly believes him to be King Louis XIV's 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.
