The Importance of Being Earnest

“THE MOST PERFECT COMEDY IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.” — LONDON TELEGRAPH

One of the funniest comedies ever scribed, Oscar Wilde’s most popular play has entertained theatre-goers for over a century. Everyone is in love with Ernest, the irresistible bad boy of London society. The trouble is, Ernest doesn’t exist. Oscar Wilde fills this uproarious farce with delicious bon mots, as two pairs of young lovers scramble to untangle their own web of lies and win the approval of the imperious Lady Bracknell. Earnest is a wildly entertaining “trivial comedy for serious people,” that sparkles with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations.

"Directed by Josh Costello and presented with 'two brisk, ten minute intermissions,' the play revives Wilde’s infamous wit with interactive staging and a stellar cast."


It’s a testament to the cast’s excellent rapport, as well as Wilde’s writing, that there isn’t a dull beat in the entire play.
EARNEST is a hit across the board!! Not only is it "sheer comic brilliance" (SF Examiner), but its "pitch-perfect delivery lands witty punches" every time. Watch our trailer and see for yourself! Now extended thru May 19th! bit.ly/EarnestAurora
