The Importance of Being Earnest

Riot Act, Inc. presents The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde Thurs. Feb.  27 to Sat. March 1 and Thurs. March 6 to Sat. March 8 at 8:00pm in the Grand Room at Snow King. 

 Jackson theater veteran Cynthia Huyffer directs this satire of Victorian culture with plenty of mistaken identities and slapstick romance.  Our wonderful cast includes P.J. Buckles, Lindsay Burgess, David Dell, Curt Haws, Leah Holmes, Leigh Hunter, Graham Koten, Lynne Matthews, Frankie McCarthy, and Linda Rode.

First published in 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde’s most famous play, filled with clever phrases and smart quips about Victorian society. This comedy follows Jack and Algernon – members of the English aristocracy bound by the rules of Victorian morality – bend the truth to create excitement in their lives. As they each fall in love, their little white lies are turned on end and must be righted to win their betrotheds.
