“All the worlds a lie, and all the men and women merely liars.” See The Village Repertory Co.'s new production "The Liar" at The Woolfe Street Playhouse, now through April 27th.
"The Liar" tells the story of Dorante, a charming, handsome pathological liar. When he arrives in Paris, Dorante’s outlandish tales amaze and convince all who hear them. But for each problem his clever lying solves, it creates two new ones. Will he manage to keep his stories straight, his dupes none the wiser and somehow still get the girl? This joyful French farce bursts onto the stage in Broadway playwright David Ives’ sparkling new adaptation.
Told from the perspective of Cinderella’s only friends – the kitchen rats- this new take on the classic fairy tale cleverly blends comedy and music to tell the story of a young girl living with her nasty stepmother and ugly stepsisters who get a chance to go to the ball and “boogie in the big dance hall” where she falls for the “man-some” prince!
The true story of Cinderella has never been told before… at least according to her friends — five rats named Ears, Teeth, Claws, Tail and Whiskers!

Set against the bleak and windy Yorkshire moors in the mid-1800s, Arlene Hutton’s Parhelia follows the lives of the Brontësisters as they struggle to find creative prosperity, while navigating the harsh realities of male society. Faced with limited opportunities for educated women, Charlotte, Emily and Anne live in the rich worlds of their imaginations, until they are forced to face the truth that nothing is certain, and their destinies are best served when held firmly in their own hands. Inspired by Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov,Parhelia is a rich adaptation that deftly explores the parallels in the lives of the Brontë’s and the Prozorovs resulting in a deeply gratifying new theatre piece by the author of Letters to Sala and Last Train to Nibroc.
