Gamm Theatre 33rd Season: 2017-2018 Performances

September 1 @ 12:00 am - October 31 @ 12:00 am

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST:

A TRIVIAL COMEDY FOR SERIOUS PEOPLE

by OSCAR WILDE  

SEP – OCT, 2017

 

A farcical masterpiece with rapid-fire wit and eccentric characters, The Important of Being Earnest is Wilde’s last and most celebrated play. In late Victorian London, companions in cavorting Jack Worthing and Algernon “Algy” Moncrieff have fallen in love with two ladies who have their hearts set on marrying a man named Ernest. In pursuit of romance, both men concoct an elaborate deception. When Algy’s aunt, the formidable Lady Bracknell, starts sleuthing about for the truth, an outlandish surprise is revealed. Wilde’s buoyant comedy of manners will keep you anticipating a new bon mot or a fresh twist of plot from one moment to the next.

 

“The rare work of art that achieves perfection on its own terms….Dazzles both with its light touch and with its sturdy construction, like a cathedral made of spun sugar.” New York Times
