"The Importance of Being Earnest" by Aquila Theatre

  • January 29, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Merchant Hall

This acclaimed British-American touring company presents a delightful production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. This deliciously witty comedy details the escapades of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, two members of the fashionable British upper crust. In an attempt to escape their dull country lives, they invent wild tales about the imaginary Ernest and Bunbury. Their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of hilarious discoveries that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits. “Gleefully engaging…almost unbearably fun,” The New York Times says of Aquila Theatre, which brings this timeless comedy to life!
