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.

“….this merry and entertaining boondoggle through life in the ‘good ole (Victorian) days’ will keep you laughing.” – Los Angeles

“(Wilde’s) writing is snappy and silly, brilliantly funny in the same moment as he is cutting. Everything is trivial to the point of brilliant, bubbling, effervescent nonsense.” – Mooney on Theatre
