ABOUT THE PLAY
From the brilliant, comedic mind of David Ives (All in the Timing, Venus in Fur) comes a hilarious “translaptation” of this 17th Century French romp, replete with wild misassumptions, mistaken identities and tangled truths. Played out in outrageously clever verse, expect lightning-fast pace, anachronistic twists and a hip cast, with plenty of nods to Corneille’s neo-classical original.
