By Henry Arthur Jones

The rarely produced 1895 classic comedy Henry Arthur Jones' play The Liars was a justifiable hit in its day even earning the approval the rival playwright and severe critic, George Bernard Shaw.
This delightfully witty play follows the social set of London who are scandalized when the beautiful and spirited Lady Jessica, wife of a prominent member of society, is on the verge of risking her marriage and reputation for the love of the handsome and dashing soldier Ed Faulkner who has recently returned from a heroic career in India. The only one who does not see her dancing on the edge of the precipice is her constantly pre-occupied husband.
Caught by her sister in a compromising private dinner with her lovesick soldier, the two women concoct a lie that soon snowballs out of control, eventually involving her entire family and friends to all of their extreme discomfort and our delight. The final act is spellbinding and suprising as their wise friend Sir Christopher Deering takes control of the situation.
