Join us for a show filled with hilarity, romance, mystery, and discover The Importance of Being Earnest!
Jack is a country gentleman who has invented a brother called Earnest so he can indulge in his city escapades to “visit Earnest”. Algernon, his city pal, has created a similar character so he can escape to the countryside. But when Jack and Algy fall in love with each other’s relatives, both pretending to be called “Earnest,” hilarity ensues and it’s not long before the fate of their love rests on a name.
“It had always been a girlish dream of mine to love someone whose name was Earnest. There is something in that name that seems to inspire absolute confidence. I pity any poor married woman whose husband is not called Earnest.”
