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, Billy, and daughter-in-law, Jane, over for drinks and dessert

Sidesplitting comic chaos ensues as Alice digs for the truth, resulting in even more honesty than anyone expected

Shattering and hilarious, this is a story of long-term love and marriage

For better

And for worse ...


"good old-fashioned comfort food for theatergoersthat offer[s] a blend of comedy and sentiment, with maybe just a hint of a sting" ~ The New York Times

"Clever Little Lies is the kind of expertly machined situation comedy offered annually by Neil Simon in the early plays like Come Blow Your Horn and Barefoot in the Park DiPietro-a jack of all theatrical genres who has Tony Awards for the book and lyrics for Memphis and who wrote the long-running comedy I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change - is a craftsman, and Clever Little Lies is nothing if not well-crafted" ~ Deadline
