The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Play for Serious People


In late Victorian London, companions in cavorting Jack Worthing and Algernon “Algy” Moncrieff have fallen in love with two ladies who have their hearts set on marrying a man named Ernest. In pursuit of romance, both men concoct an elaborate deception. This buoyant comedy of manners will keep you anticipating a fresh twist of plot from one moment to the next. Featuring Brandon Whitehead (pictured) as Oscar Wilde, working his way into his own play.
