The Importance of Being Earnest
Runs Mar 30 – Apr 02, 2023
“The Importance of Being Earnest,” a play by Oscar Wilde, directed by Jeremy Ohringer. In this Victorian farce, Algernon and Jack both pretend that their name is Earnest (a very respectable name) in order to escape burdensome social obligations and pursue those that they believe they love. As the lies begin to entangle our protagonists, they soon learn that they are more intertwined than they thought. This fast paced, light comedy will be brought to life through a deconstructed, queer lens, exploring the fashions and fictions of romance. *This show contains mature themes and suggestive language.
