MILWAUKEE – David Ives’ adaptation of Pierre Corneille’s play The Liar will be presented by Marquette Theatre at the Evan P. & Marion Helfaer Theatre. The Liar will be directed by Jamie Cheatham, assistant professor of theater arts.

The Liar portrays a cheeky adaptation of Pierre Corneille’s 17th century version, which tangles the audience in an impishly wicked web of lies full of mistaken identities and misunderstandings; rollicking wordplay and swordplay; and a dash of romance. The play will run:

  • Thursday, Feb. 12, through Saturday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb. 15, at 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 18, through Saturday, Feb. 21, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb. 22, at 2:30 p.m.

Ticket prices for the general public are $20 and can be purchased online or by contacting the theatre box office at (414) 288-7504. All tickets on Wednesday, Feb. 18, are $6, and Thursday, Feb. 19, students can purchase two tickets for $12 with a college ID. Discounted tickets are available for senior citizens, alumni and students.
