The importance of being serious

November 12 – 21 | Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse

Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining comedy sparkles with dazzling puns and hilarious, improbable situations. This avant-garde satire on Victorian morality features two carefree bachelors, Jack and Algernon, each with a carefully hidden double life. But when Algernon finds out that Jack posed as someone named Ernest to escape the city, he quickly goes to Jack’s estate to pose as the fictional character himself, and stupidity ensues. Director Kelly Cuisines (Incident in Vichy) calls this piece “an exquisite glass of champagne – deliciously sparkling and slightly intoxicating, but the result of intricate alchemy – a skillful blend of craftsmanship and artistry.” You can just take it down, ”she said,“ but it’s worth investigating further. ”
