Clever Little Lies
Written by Joe DiPietro
Director: Jerry Pilato
Presented by Point Loma Playhouse

The Point Loma Playhouse’s 2017 Winter Production is the Tony Awards winner, Joe DiPietro’s, Clever Little Lies. 

About the Show:
A mother always knows when something is wrong. When Alice notices her beloved husband Bill 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. , and daughter-in-law, Jane, over for drinks and dessert. Sidesplitting chaos ensues as Alice digs for the truth, resulting in even more honesty than anyone expected. Shattering and hilarious, Clever Little Lies is a story of long-term love and marriage… for better… and for worse.

Cast Breakdown:
Billy: Male, 30 - 35
Fit, a young married man who just had his first child. He is caught up in an extramarital affair and it is causing him much stress, especially with his parents when they learn of it. Charming, handsome and struggling with his conscience.

Jane: Female, 30 - 35
Billy's attractive young wife. Just had their first child. She is loving and well-meaning but a bit scattered now in her state, concerned about pleasing Billy. Should have an appealing sense of humor.

Bill Sr.: Male, 50 - 59
Fit, (plays tennis with his son). A decent man, attractive, a good sense of humor, and flustered by his son's indiscretions and ultimately revealing of his own complicated past with his wife.

Alice: Female, 50 - 59
Billy’s mother, attractive, a meddler, strong matriarch with a good sense of humor, but also has a touching softer side to her beliefs on the preservation of family and marriage.
