Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth. In quick succession, he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie and falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he, unfortunately, mistakes for her friend Lucrece. What our hero regrettably does not know is that Clarice is secretly engaged to his best friend, Alcippe. Nor is he aware that his father is trying to get him married to Clarice, whom he thinks is Lucrece, who actually is in love with him. From all these misunderstandings and intricate lies springs a romantic rhyming tale brilliantly adapted for lovers of today.

Recommended for ages 13 through adult.
