About the play:
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. The broadcast includes a conversation about Corneille with author and educator Larry F. Norman of the University of Chicago.
Lead funding for this production is provided by The Sidney E. Frank Foundation.
