The Importance of Being Earnest
directed by Christine Vinh
Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrief are both busy leading double lives in the highest of style: creating false identities, avoiding family obligations, wooing well-bred young ladies, visiting imaginary invalids and (equally imaginary) wayward brothers. As their respective alternate lives collide, these two will have to decide whether being Ernest or earnest will land them their heart's desire. A contemporary telling retaining the play's classic language yet infused with a shot of sexuality, 'The Importance of Being Earnest' is a prime example of how Wilde's sharp wit and humor transcends the test of time.
