About This Show

Appearing to all as a responsible upstanding gentleman, Earnest’s protagonist, Jack Worthing, leads a double life where his passions are played out in London, far from his home in the countryside. Joining with his best friend Algernon Moncrieff, the pair set out to win the hearts of the women who have stolen their hearts. Nothing, of course, goes as planned; with each act it becomes apparent to all, including amused observers, that “the truth is rarely pure and never simple.” Audience members will be enchanted and romanced from start to finish with mystique, folly and playful deception.
