The Liar by Pierre Corneille, translated by Richard Wilbur. Directed by Martin Jarvis.
In this classic farce, a young man pretends to be a war hero to impress a pretty girl. As his lies progress, so do his troubles – with hilarious results. Playwright Pierre Corneille’s comedy of manners is considered a groundbreaking work which influenced contemporaries such as the young Molière.
