The Importance of Being Earnest

You are cordially invited to a comedy of manners, sophistication, and frivolity that could only come from the mind of Oscar Wilde! Meet two dashing bachelors and dear friends, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who each created an alter ego in order to escape the humdrum of gentlemanly life and the boring trappings of respectability that go along with it. Enter the Honorable Gwendolen and the fair Cecily, who are determined to marry a man named Ernest. Add to the mix a domineering and society focused matriarch, a missing heir, and a battered handbag, and you have Oscar Wilde’s classic drawing room comedy.

If you’re in the mood for an evening of witty dialogue, snappy repartee and charming plot twists, look no further than Little Theatre of Virginia Beach this winter!
