A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

Event Details

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, directed by Debra Hammond.

Easily Oscar Wilde’s best known and wittiest play, this high-brow farcical comedy is set in Victorian London, 1895 and is filled with identity confusions, confounding conundrums, and back-handed courtships. The story follows a young gentleman, Jack Worthing, who is in love with his friend Algernon’s cousin, Gwendolyn. But Jack is leading a double life as “Ernest” while Algernon, who is in love with Jack’s young ward, Cecily, professes a similar lie pretending to have a sick friend by the name of “Bunbury” to avoid social obligations. All is revealed in the end in devilishly, Wilde ways!

Directors’ Discussion at 5:30 PM, preceding the Thursday, April 19 performance at 7:00 PM
