The Importance of Being Ernest Hemingway
directed by James Rutherford
Literature's most dazzling wit faces down its most red-blooded stoic. Set in 1926 Paris with rugged Hemingway men in the roles of Jack and Algy, this mash-up of texts from Oscar Wilde and Ernest Hemingway outs the gay romance in Wilde's best-loved work and collides it with Hemingway's impossible machismo, exposing both artists' desperate search for an Ideal Masculinity. The Importance of Being Ernest Hemingway is a trivial comedy about pain, lies, violence and vengeance.
