2019 Fall Performance

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest, sparkles with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations. This “trivial comedy for serious people” features carefree bachelors, beguiling and jealous fiancées, formidable dowagers, and the most famous handbag in theatre history!
