The Importance of Being Earnest

Directed by John Tranchitella

September 26 to October 19, 2014

The 5th production of the 2014 Season

Written by: Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest is a celebrated and classic comedy of manners in which two flippant young men, in order to impress their respected beloveds, pretend that their names are “Ernest,” which both young ladies believe confers magical qualities on the possessor. It was first performed for the public on February 14, 1895 at the St. James’ Theatre in London, and is regarded by many critics and scholars as being the wittiest play in the English language.
