About This Show

As a part of the First Folio Shakespeare Festival, The Importance of Being Earnest is a hilarious comedy of manners that follows the pitfalls and predicaments experienced by the upper class Algernon Moncrieff and his best friend Jack as they try to woo the lovely ladies of their dreams, Gwendolyn and Cecily. Shakespeare may have asked, “What’s in a name?” Wilde’s play makes it clear that sometimes, a name is everything, especially if one is earnest in love.
