Ensemble Theatre Company Extends Performances of ‘The Liar’

The Ensemble Theatre Company of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce that, due to popular demand and sold-out performances, its current production of The Liar will be extended.

The production has received rave reviews. The Santa Barbara Independent called this clever and zany farce “highly entertaining, unceasingly funny.” The News-Press praised it for “one of the best comic performances in many a season … just stunning.”

The production will now play through Sunday, March 3.

Dorante, a charismatic country law student — and habitual liar — has come to Paris seeking pleasure. He falls head over heels for the beautiful Clarice, but mistakes her name for that of her best friend, Lucrece. His trusty servant Cliton, however, has one weakness: He must tell the truth.

Contemporary playwright David Ives, author of All in the Timing and Venus in Fur, spins a laugh-filled modern twist on this classic French farce by Pierre Corneille. The Liar is directed by executive artistic director Jonathan Fox.

Additional performances for The Liar will run from Wednesday, Feb. 27 to Saturday, March 2, at 8 p.m., and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 3. Tickets for these added performances are now on sale at the Ensemble box office at 805.965.5400 or by clicking here. Check out the Ensemble’s Facebook page for more information and rave reviews from audience members.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
