The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
Generously sponsored by
Franca Bonging Lockard
Nancy K. Johnson
Oscar Wilde’s delectable wordplay is at the forefront of his sublime “trivial comedy for serious people. It does seem unthinkable but both Jack Worthing and Algernon Montcrief must assume the name “Earnest” in order to win their loves’ hearts. For the ladies are certain they could never be happy married to a man who was named something other the Earnest. But the lads’ matrimonial plans may be thwarted by Jack’s questionable lineage and the formidable Lady Bracknell, who is the mother of his intended and Algernon’s aunt. Their dilemma leads to the most articulate hilarity in the history of theatre.
Show Advisory
While appropriate for all ages, this romantic comedy is best appreciated by children 10 and older.
