The Importance of
By Oscar Wilde
October 5-21, 2018
Thurs-Sat. - 8 PM; Sun. 2 PM
In this “Trivial Comedy for Serious People,” the charming Algernon and Jack both use the alias of “Ernest” to hobnob outside their stuffy social circles. But their harmless deceptions come to a halt when they fall in love with women more taken with their assumed names than with the men themselves – and the imperious Lady Bracknell doesn’t approve of either union. They can’t both be Ernest – or can they?
This classic comedy-of-manners has been thumbing its nose at “proper society” for over 100 years!
