“Clever Little Lies” Continues in Quogue

The Hampton Theatre Company presents “Clever Little Lies” through November 12, 2017.

Performances take place on Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.

“Clever Little Lies”—an adult comedy by Joe DiPietro about love and marriage, in and outside the bonds of matrimony—will be the first play of the Hampton Theatre Company’s 2017-2018 season. Directed by Andrew Botsford, “Clever Little Lies” features four Hampton Theatre Company veterans—Ed Brennan, Carolann DiPirro, Terrance Fiore, and Diana Marbury.

Sensing from her husband that something is wrong in their son’s marriage, Alice invites the young couple over for a cocktails and cheesecake interrogation. As one set of lies breaks down, Alice offers an object lesson by creating a new web of fanciful deceit about her own marriage. Or is she telling the truth? Characterized as both shattering and hilarious, the play is a laugh-filled story of long-term love and marriage, for better and for worse.

Tickets range from $10 to $30. “Clever Little Lies" will be performed through November 12, 2017 with shows on Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. An additional matinee will be offered on November 11. The Quogue Community Hall is located at 125 Jessup Ave, Quogue, NY 11959.
