Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park Presents: The Liar
Head to OKC’s Paseo District for a delightful evening of fiendishly clever, if not slightly naughty, word and swordplay as Oklahoma Shakespeare brings “The Liar” to their home stage.
Adapted by David Ives from a Pierre Corneille classic, this 17th century farcical comedy unfolds and compounds as braggadocio Dorante confuses the names of two young ladies, creating a love quadrangle that’s only further complicated by his inability to tell the truth.
Since 1985, this non-profit troupe has been bringing to life the works of master playwrights like William Shakespeare, building a following and garnering a reputation as one of Oklahoma’s most treasured cultural assets. Although headquartered for several years at Hafer Park and UCO in Edmond, several fires and floods forced the company to relocate to central Oklahoma City where the summer season is now performed at either the Myriad Botanical Gardens Water Stage or in the Paseo District.
Primarily known for their summer series, Oklahoma Shakespeare also actively produces plays and stage readings year round all over the Oklahoma City metro.
