Outdoor play and picnic at Boscobel: The Liar (not Shakespeare!)

Over the last few years we have enjoyed several fantastic performances in the idyllic setting of Boscobel's outdoor theater. This year I will be attending all 3 plays, come join us for 1, 2 or all 3 (see discounts below)! On Sunday June 15th join us for:

The Liar by David Ives - adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille directed by Russell Treyz.

Take one young man who cannot tell the truth, his manservant who cannot tell a lie, add two beautiful young women, a jealous lover and then sit back to enjoy the hilarious consequences in David Ives’ brilliantly witty adaptation of this classic comedy.

Bonus: After the play there will be a Q&A with the actors.

Potluck picnic on the lawns prior to the show

Prior to the show we plan on having a potluck picnic on the lawn, with views of the Hudson River and surrounding hills. You can also enjoy a short stroll along their hiking trail or through the grounds.

As the audience sits under a tent the performance will occur rain or shine, only the actors might get wet whilst we still enjoy the surrounding scenery!

Schedule

5pm - picnic and walk in the grounds. Bring a dish to share.

7pm - performance starts.

We will meet on the lawn overlooking the Hudson at 5 pm for our picnic; bring food to share and a blanket/chair.  Having cups and plates etc would be a good idea too! The picnic is subject to cancellation, depending on the weather.

    Wonderful evening. Beautiful weather not too hot, good for a wonderful picnic and time under the tent. The play was very well done and the director and the playwrite's (transaptator) discussion afterwards was great. All in all a superb evening.

    I always enjoy our pot luck picnics on the lawn at Boscobel. We shared some yummy food, pleasant, interesting company and breathtaking views. The Liar was absolutely, hilarious and I would have to rank it as my favorite play so far at Boscobel. Thanks Heike, for putting this meetup together every year.
