The importance of Being Earnest

January 11, 12, 14, 18, 19, 25, and 26 AT 7:30PM

 By Oscar Wilde

Jack Worthing, a wealthy British socialite, wants to marry his love Gwendolyn, but is stymied by Gwendolyn’s overbearing aunt, the Lady Bracknell, who disapproves of Jack’s humble origins as a baby lost in a handbag. Meanwhile, Jack’s friend Algernon schemes to meet and woo Jack’s young ward, Cecily. Both Algernon use imaginary aliases to help them achieve their social goals—Jack goes by the name “Ernest” in town, while Algernon pretends to have a friend named “Bunbury” in the country. Their carefully constructed lies are quite exploded, however, when Algernon shows up at Jack’s country estate pretending to be “Mr. Ernest Worthing.” Can these two men of manners manage to untangle their deceptions and marry the loves of their lives?

Tickets are $12.00.  Doors will open at 7:00pm and the show will begin at 7:30pm.
