The School For Lies by David Ives
Adapted from The Misanthrope by Molière

The School For Lies is set in Paris in 1666 at a fashionable Salon run by a sharp tongued and witty young widow,  Celimene.  She is pursued by a number of shallow suitors whom she is able to live off of without ever taking them up on any of their offers.  Enter Frank, who has recently changed his name while away in London.  He is determined to live up to his new name by being frank and rude to everyone.  When Frank and Celimene meet, the sparks fly in this hilarious adaptation of Molière's The Misanthrope written by award-winning playwright, David Ives!
