The Importance of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde

May 2 - June 14, 2020

This witty, layered show is a classic for a reason! Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece truly is as applicable now as it was when first written. Jack and his best friend Algernon have no desire to keep social obligations and no patience for boredom. Their plan to avoid the tedium of being themselves is to become other people entirely! The two young men proceed to make up entirely fictitious personae – both named Earnest - and live their lives under this new name. Everything is well and good, until they both fall in love with women who have sworn only to marry a man named Earnest. In the face of lovestruck but silly ladies, prudish governesses, and sharp-tongued matriarchs, can they keep up the deception? Will they even want to?
