THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is considered one of Oscar Wilde’s greatest works. It lampoons Victorian high society, as two dapper gents (Algernon and Jack) each try to bring excitement to their lives by adopting the false persona of “Earnest” while wooing their current love interests (Gwendolyn and Cecily). Everything begins to unravel for them when their plots become twisted and their identities are revealed. While it is set in the 1800s, EARNEST’s biting satire of aristocratic hypocrisy continues to ring true today.
Students involved in this production rehearsed and prepared both remotely and in-person following all district safety protocols. All production took place remotely.
