The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, Probably the wittiest comedy in the English language. To avoid various social responsibilities, Jack Worthing has invented an irresponsible younger brother named Earnest. This is a comedy of manners that will be performed with British accents and period detail. Please prepare an accent to use during the auditions, and think about the time period which is important to understand the urbane language and wit. Think Downton Abbey, if it was sprinkled with a pinch of Monty Python.
For 5 men and 4 women. Unit Set. Directed by Craig Johnson.
