With this play, we dive into the world of the Portuguese upper bourgeoisie of the first half of the 19th century. We follow the story of the engagement, unpredictable and unusual, of Duarte Guedes, a young compulsive liar, and his fiancée Amália. It is expected that the intervention of Joaquina and José Félix, daring servants loyal to their masters, will make Duarte's lies credible. Will they succeed in their endeavour? There is also Mr. Brás Ferreira, Amália's father, always ready to catch Duarte in one of his lies and annul the marriage. Some suspense, lots of smiles, a dowry in between, a general, a lot of confusion and good humour make up this classic Almeida Garrett plot.
