The Wrap



David Saint, artistic director of the George Street Playhouse, where Clever Little Lies made its world premiere in December 2013, again directs.

"A mother always knows when something is wrong," according to press notes. "When Alice (Marlo Thomas) notices her beloved husband Bill (Greg Mullavey) has returned home on edge after a tennis match with their son, she grows suspicious and springs into action. Determined to piece together the puzzle, she invites her son, Bill, Jr. (George Merrick) and daughter-in-law, Jane (Kate Wetherhead), over for drinks and dessert. Sidesplitting chaos ensues as Alice digs for the truth, resulting in even more honesty than anyone expected."

The creative team includes Yoshi Tanokura (scenic design), Esther Arroyo (costume design), Christopher J. Bailey (lighting design), Scott Killian (sound design and composition) and McCorkle Casting (casting).

Producers are Joan Raffe, Jhett Tolentino, Douglas Denoff and Edward Walson.
