The Importance of Being Earnest

April 29 @ 8:00 am - May 12 @ 5:00 pm

The Importance of Being Earnest

Ends May 12th 

Aurora Theatre Company

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.
