Lovers and Liars

Lovers and Liars : A David Garrick Double Bill


The University of York department of Theatre, Film and Television would like to invite you to our upcoming event: Lovers and Liars : A David Garrick Double Bill, featuring performances of David Garrick’s Miss in Her Teens and The Lying Valet performed  by Third Year students on the department’s Writing, Directing and Performance course.


Following the success of last term’s Bloody Poetry and Greenland, the department is very excited to be opening its doors once more to the public in what will be the final showcase performance for the department’s current third years. Audiences can expect to see two very different interpretations of works by one of Britain’s best 18th century comedy playwrights.

This website will document our process as we tackle the challenge of staging two 18th century farces on one night for a 21st Century audience. Browse through our directors, designers and actors Blogs, explore the latest rehearsal photos in the Gallery or learn about the historical context of the plays through Our Research: A Dramaturg’s Perspective
