The charming Dorante cannot tell the truth, and his manservant Cliton cannot tell a lie. From this simple premise springs one of the Western world’s greatest comedies, a spirited seventeenth century French farce brilliantly adapted for today, complete with mistaken lovers, suspicious fathers, sparkling romance, frothy comedy, and an abundance of breathtakingly intricate “alternative facts.”

This delightfully silly French farce translated into English is extremely fast paced. It contains some adult language and humor and sexual innuendo, and the action moves so quickly it may be difficult for young children to follow at times. It may not be suitable for preteens and younger teenagers.
