Point Loma Playhouse presenst a limited run of Jerry Pilato’s "Clever Little Lies."

Framed through the eyes of a concerned mother, a confused father, an adulterous husband and a distracted wife, this four-person cast will leave you wondering who you can trust. Shattering and hilarious, "Clever Little Lies" is a story of long-term love and marriage, for better and for worse.

From the New York Times review:

“In the snappy opening scene, Bill Jr., whose wife recently delivered their first child, confides in his father that he is having an affair. Billy, as he is called, has fallen in starry-eyed love with his much-younger mistress – “It’s like she has the window into my soul” – and his emotions lead him to alternately cry in confusion and rejoice in glee. With his confession, comes a command, “You can’t tell Mom any of this!”


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

"Clever Little Lies," written by Joe DiPietro and directed by Jerry Pilato, featuring William Parker (Billy), Melanie McCorkle (Jane), Richard Rivera (Bill Sr.) and Dori Salois (Alice).
