BC theatre preview
The Brevard College Theater Department will
be putting on a production of the David Ives play
“The Liar” as the first play of the 2019-2020
academic year.
Some of the cast will include Anthony
Zuniga as Dorante, K’nique Eichelberger as
Cliton, Elisabeth Arrona as Clarice and Claudia
Dahlman as Lucrece.
The play is a comedy that takes place in
1643 during the Renaissance era and is written
entirely in verse.
In the play, Dorante, a man who cannot tell
the truth, meets Cliton, a man who cannot tell
a lie, and Dorante hires him to be his servant.
Dorante sees Clarice and falls in love with her,
but she is engaged to Alcippe. Dorante then sets
out to find this woman, but thinks that her name
is Lucrece, her best friend.
The play will be directed by Elizabeth
Kirkland, a visiting director from Alabama.
“Everything is connected,” Elisabeth Arrona
said. “There is no unimportant part played in
this play. Pay attention to everything, because
it will come in handy to deciphering this web
that has been set before you.”
“The Liar” opens Thursday, Sept. 26, at 7
p.m. and plays through Sept. 29. Tickets will be
$5 for students and $10 for the general public.
