Dorante, a first-rate fabulist, has a gift for stretching the truth. But when he falls in love he begins to weave an increasingly intricate web of lies that even he can't keep up with. David Ives (Broadway's Venus in Fur and Lives of the Saints) sets the scene for a hilarious misadventure of romance that's short on truth but long on laughter.

With music by Jay Stollman
Wealthy widow Cornelia Cunningham has led a life of grace and privilege—and she’s making up for it as fast as she can. Determined to donate almost everything she owns before the end, Cornelia’s plans are questioned when an ambitious and ingratiating young man, who may be the grandson she never knew she had, arrives to claim his inheritance.
The bedroom is the one room that sees the best, the worst, and the most of us. To the couples in Alan Ayckbourn’s rollicking comedy Bedroom Farce, it’s also a dining room, a workshop, a cloakroom, and a boxing ring. Over the course of one very long Saturday evening, in three separate bedrooms, the roles and relationships of four couples, and one almost love triangle, are laid bare, complete with squabbles, bothers, a few bruises, and a hilariously touching epiphany.
