Set in Paris, 1643, Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth. After meeting a manservant who cannot tell a lie, and falling in love with a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend, misunderstandings and a series of breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world's greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All in the Timing's David Ives.
