SYNOPSIS

NEW TO PARIS, YOUNG DORANTE is immediately lifted into a world of gallantry and prestige. Intoxicated by this new environment, he invents a fictitious identity. But a misunderstanding about two young women’s names, Lucrèce and Clarice, together with his father’s wish that he marry one of the two, leads to a tangled web, in which truth and lies are lost in fantasy. A baroque comedy by Corneille, Le Menteur invites us to reflect on the role truth and lies play in social interactions. Through its misunderstandings, the play highlights the strange peculiarities of the young Parisians living in the golden era of the 17 th century. With humour and subtlety, this timeless classic offers lively language of rare virtuosity.
