Play information:

First performed over 100 years ago in London, The Importance of Being Earnestis regarded by critics and scholars as being one of the wittiest plays ever written.  Known as a trivial comedy for serious people, this hilarious play finds two dashing men-about-town pursuing their share of wine, women and song. Deciding to bend the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives, they complicate matters by inventing imaginary characters to help them escape their tedious obligations and cover their clandestine activities.  The Importance of Being Earnest makes elegant fun out of mistaken identities and sexual warfare. It remains today one of the theatre‚Äôs most perfectly created comedies.
