In this smart, harrowing, edge-of-your-seat thriller, a desperate mother will do anything to get her daughter back. In an abandoned motel on a desolate American road, she meets with a man whom she believes is her only hope at reunion. But nothing is as it seems and what happens instead will shock her to her core.

For audiences who love wit, wordplay, and savvy reinvention of the classics comes THE LIAR: a sparkling urban romance, reinvented by David Ives with contemporary flair. Ives’ “translaptation” of Pierre Corneille’s 17th century comedy follows Dorante, a young Frenchman and pathological liar whose outlandish stories become the talk of the capital, but for every problem he solves with his deception, he creates two new ones in its place. What is truth in an urban landscape of rumor, innuendo, and the formidable power of a fabulous story?

Having dedicated her life to religious service, Shelley runs a Bronx soup kitchen where even the staff is needy, but lately her heart’s not quite in it. When Emma – an idealistic but confused college dropout – arrives to volunteer, her reckless mix of generosity and self-involvement pushes Shelley to the breaking point. With keen humor and startling compassion, Shelley and her motley group navigate the mystery of faith, the limits of forgiveness, and how to find a little peace.
