Oscar Wilde's luminous wit and sparkling satire are at their best in The Importance of Being Earnest, a comedy of good manners, bad manners, and all manner of things in between. Jack and Algernon are a pair of dashing young men-about-town in search of life's great pleasures: brilliant conversation, enchanting ladies, and a decent cucumber sandwich.

Together they’ve faced countless hardships, from disapproving matrons to flighty governesses, and always made it back in time for tea… but when they begin to woo two different women using the same rougish fake identity, it's an all-out war to see who will be "Earnest" enough to succeed.

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes with one intermission.
