The Importance of Being Earnest
( 05/07/2010 - 06/12/2010 )
The humor in this immortal social satire derives in part from the characters maintaining fictitious identities to escape unwelcome social obligations. Jack Worthing has invented a brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his humdrum country life behind to visit the ravishing Gwendolen, cousin of his best friend Algernon Montcrieff. But Algernon, who also knows Jack as Ernest, catches on all too quickly that Jack earnestly isnít Ernest. So Algernon decides to take the name Ernest when he visits the Worthing country manor where he meets Jackís ward, the sweet and lovely Cecily who has spent so much time worrying about her poor caregiverís wretched brother Ernest that sheís grown rather fond of the man she hasnít met - until now. Add the hapless governess Miss Prism, the love-stricken Vicar Reverend Chasuble, and the imperious Lady Bracknell and you have a recipe for laughs.
