David Ives brings a classic play to the present --- A man who fabricates stories, who can't keep himself from lying, who is unrepentant when his on-the-fly fictions are exposed, who lives in an alternate reality?

Its two characters are developed with specificity and nuance; its plot includes rising action and resolution; and its final moment firmly concludes the story's arc.
