“The Liar” by Mike Eserkaln
4 Men 4 Women
A compulsive liar named Bill charms his way into an exclusive resort hotel with his tag-along disaster pal Chuckie. Bill quickly falls in love with a guest of the hotel, and because of his silver tongue, he and his friend find themselves in a whirlwind series of mishaps and mix-ups. Loosely based on the classic Comedia del Arte comedy “The Liar”. Large cast, perfect for a College production. No swearing, but plenty of innuendo and sexual mischievousness.

“”The Liar” has a big vocabulary of comedy. Zipping past are sight, verbal and sound gags. There’s banter — and scenes of unspoken comedy. It’s sexy. It’s sassy. It’s loopy, corny, stupid, silly, frothy, and fun.” Warren Gurds Green Bay Press Gazette.
When I was charging for producing my plays it was a flat fee of $50 per production, no matter how big the audience… That seems like a money making opportunity for someone.
