The New York Times praises playwright David Ives' "inexhaustible verbal dexterity," declaring that his "wordplay is really the star of the show." The play, completely in iambic pentameter, tells the story of a French aristocrat named Frank who harbors a hatred of the hypocrisy and lies that surround him. When Frank's well-aimed insults get him into trouble in his world of arrogant suitors and well-to-do ladies, including a witty widow named Celimene, hilarity ensues.
