The Importance Of Being Earnest

Written by Oscar Wilde
Directed by Stephen Wrentmore

Tucson: September 14 – October 5, 2013
Phoenix: October 10 – 27, 2013

Overview

At a refined bachelor flat trouble is brewing! In Oscar Wilde’s most beloved and endlessly delightful classic, Jack is in love with Gwendolen, Algernon is in love with Cecily. But Gwendolen and Cecily are both in love with Ernest, who in fact does not exist. In a tangle of mistaken identity and delicious wordplay, the lovers also face the indomitable force of Lady Bracknell. Full of sparkling wit, provocative remarks and with satirical humor at every turn, this truly is one the most loved and enduringly popular plays of all time, brought to new life with ATC's panache.
