Shy Englishman Charlie BAker finds himself in a rural Georgia fishing lodge where everyone comes to believe he doesn't speak English. And we're off on one wilde adventure! We open our 2014 Season with one of the funniest plays of the 20th Century!
Playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur) pulls out all the stops in a deliciously witty, over-¬‐the-¬‐top farce, THE SCHOOL FOR LIES, a San Diego premiere presented by North Coast Repertory Theatre. As in Molière’s The Misanthrope upon which it is based, the elaborately costumed characters play out their decadent lives in elegant 17th century French drawing rooms. However, the situations and scandals are decidedly 21st century ― frivolous lawsuits, sleazy lawyers, flip-¬‐flops, and rock ‘n roll ―to name a few. In a stunning display of verbal acrobatics, Ives has his scheming, gossiping characters speak in hilarious rhyming couplets that will leave the audience weak with laughter as they anticipate the zinger that always comes. Be prepared for an evening of unabashed merriment.
