“The Importance of Being Ernest” Production

Written by Oscar Wilde in 1895, this popular and enduring comedy follows the exploits of friends Jack and Algernon who concoct elaborate deceptions to engage their love interests, Gwendolen and Cecily. Their carefully arranged schemes fall apart with the arrival of the formidable Lady Bracknell. What follows is a merry tangle of mistaken identities and witty banter as multiple love stories play out simultaneously with great charm and humor.
