    The Importance Of Being Earnest
    By Oscar Wilde
    A Trivial Comedy For Serious People
    Directed by Weldon Ledbetter
    May 8 – 17

    This masterpiece is probably the most famous of all comedies. It revolves wittily around the most ingenious case of “manufactured” mistaken identity ever put into a play. Oscar Wilde’s most brilliant tour de force, a witty and buoyant comedy of manners, has delighted millions in countless productions.
    The story is quite simple. Two bachelors, the dependable John Worthing, J.P and upper-class playboy Algernon Moncrieff, feel compelled to create different identities in order to pursue two eligible ladies, Cecily Cardew and Gwendolyn Fairfax.
    Hilarious misadventures result from their subterfuge: their brushes with the redoubtable Lady Bracknell and the uptight Miss Prism punctuate a serpentine plot that fizzes with some of the finest dialogue in all of theatre.
    The Importance of Being Earnest is a farce, one of the best ever written, cleverly constructed and delightfully amusing. In the hands of Oscar Wilde, this farce contains more clever lines, puns, epigrams, and deft repartees than any other of modern times.
    Don’t miss the rare opportunity to see this classic production deftly directed by Weldon Ledbetter and performed by a cast more than up to the demands this witty and delightful script requires.
