The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Scott Albert Bennett
Performed at the Bartell Theatre on the Evjue stage

Cecily Cardew and Gwendolen Fairfax are both in love with the same mythical suitor. Jack Worthing has wooed Gwendolen as Ernest while Algernon has also posed as Ernest to win the heart of Jack’s ward, Cecily. When all four arrive at Jack’s country home on the same weekend – the “rivals” to fight for Ernest’s undivided attention and the “Ernests” to claim their beloveds – pandemonium breaks loose. Only a senile nursemaid and an old, discarded handbag can save the day!

Oscar Wilde’s madcap farce about mistaken identities, secret engagements, and lovers’ entanglements still delights readers more than a century after its 1895 publication and premiere performance. Our production will be cross-gender cast, adding to the conversation about gender identity and absurd gender roles in the turn-of-the-century culture.
