The architect must be a prophet... a prophet in the true sense of the term... if he can't see at least ten years ahead don't call him an architect. - Frank Lloyd Wright

DEAR LIAR, when first written, (or rather compiled and edited) created a form for playwriting which has been much emulated since. The form is one of straightforward narration of the events rather than a re-creation of them.

The events in this case are the ones that accompanied the intense relationship between George Bernard Shaw and Stella Campbell (a famous actress of the time) and which found expression in ‘the hundreds of letters they wrote to one another over the years…’ The play chronicles their deep mutual admiration and love (despite both of them being married, and not to each other!) as well as that very significant era of history (1895 to 1939) which was witness to innumerable path-breaking accomplishments in theatre, and to both the World Wars and the end of the Edwardian era, and with it, that particular way of life so dear to people like Mrs. Campbell.
