The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde.
Since its first production in London in 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest, written by Oscar Wilde, has been widely popular with audiences across the years. Perhaps the greatest satirist of the Victorian era, Wilde regarded Earnest as a "trivial play for serious people". The Importance of Being Earnest follows the blossoming romances of two proper gentlemen, Algernon Moncreiff and Jack Worthing. Growing tired of their mundane lifestyles, the two create a series of elaborate lies that lead us down a twisted road of conflict and hilarity. As the story develops you will discover tales of mislaid babies, mistaken identities, secret engagements, baffled suitors, and some of the wittiest wordplay ever volleyed over cucumber sandwiches. Join us as these two young men bend the rules and demands of Victorian Society...until they inevitably succumb to the demands of their true loves, eventually realizing the vital importance of being earnest.
Directed by John Tomlinson and produced by New Vintage Productions, The Importance of Being Earnest will be playing at the Weaver Auditorium at the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum, Nov. 2-4 and Nov. 9-11, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 pm and Sundays at 2pm. The first Sunday, Nov. 4, will be a special actor's benefit performance: all ticket proceeds will be divided among the cast and crew.
