“The School for Lies” is Brilliant Satire and a Bawdy Farce

**** Highly Recommended **** I loved The Artistic Home’s production of “The School for Lies”, a modern satire done in period costumes.  Moliere might be rolling over in his grave, but David Ives’ adaptation of “The Misanthrope” is brilliant – and he wrote it in iambic pentameter!  “The School for Lies” is also a bawdy farce about people in an improbable situation, chock full of sophisticated word play, physical humor, pratfalls, disguises, mistaken identities and repeating gags.  Kudos to Director Kathy Scambiattera and her cast for a very funny production.  4 Spotlights
