The Importance of Being Earnest

About This Show

The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep presents the trivial comedy for serious people, The Importance of Being Earnest as its next student production! This masterpiece by Oscar Wilde revolves ridiculously around the most ingenious case of “manufactured” mistaken identity ever put into a play. Director Benjamin Cole is proud to present this pinnacle of playful parodies of the “leisure class” in the Victorian era. “The comedy of manners style is so clearly articulated in the back-and-forth banter,” Cole expounds. “We’re gleefully challenging our talented students with precision of physicality and vocal delivery,” he insists. Assistant Director Steve Smith adds, “We've kicked off most rehearsals with lessons on "Received Pronunciation," the most standard form of British dialect. Witty Wildean wordplay wouldn't sound right without the proper accents and our cast has had a great time learning and implementing new vocal techniques!”
