Westport Playhouse The Liar

05/05/2015 to 05/23/2015

25 Powers Court, Westport, CT Phone: (203) 227-4177.

with "The Liar" by David Ives, author of the hit plays "Venus in Fur" and "All in the Timing." Ives deftly updates a classic comedy of manners, Pierre Corneille's "The Liar," with his trademark intelligence, cheek, and wit. In "The Liar," Dorante has a gift for stretching the truth. In fact, he rips it apart at the seams. But when the first-rate fabulist falls in love with Clarice—or is she Lucrece?—he begins to weave an increasingly intricate web of lies that even he can't keep up with. Add to the mix a loyal servant, a meddling father, and a jealous best friend, and the scene is set for a misadventure of romance that's short on truth but long on laughter. Tuesdays at 7 p.m., the performance schedule continues with Wednesday at 2 and 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 3 and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Special series feature Taste of Tuesday, Previews, LGBT Night OUT, Opening Night, Sunday Symposium, Open Captions, Thursday TalkBack, Together at the Table Family Dinner, Playhouse Young Professionals, and Backstage Pass.

"Rosie the Riveter" was a true American icon, answering the call to work during the war years. There were millions of "Rosies" and millions of stories are being brought to life over half a century later. In his latest book, Women's Work in WWII, aviation historian John Cilio combines photographs and the stories of the women who stepped into jobs with minimal training and no experience in order to keep America running.
