The Museum hosts The Listening Place Readers Theater as they present, Dear Liar on Sunday – February 26 and March 5 at 1:30 pm at the Monterey Museum of Art-Pacific Street located at 559 Pacific Street in Monterey.

Dear Liar is a bewitching repartee between two great wits based on the correspondence between George Bernard Shaw and Mrs. Patrick Campbell, written by Jerome Kilty. Here is Shaw in all his contradictions; he adores the actress Mrs. Patrick Campbell (born Beatrice Stella Tanner) most ascetically, and persuades her to play in his Pygmalion. He frets when she leaves for America, and yet he refuses permission to publish their letters which would save her from bankruptcy. Mrs. Campbell is his match; she publishes the letters anyway. Here is a strange and intriguing theatrical romance fought around the world.

Featured performers are Robert Colter and Suzanne Sturn. Dear Liar is directed by Suzanne Sturn and by produced by Linda Hancock.
