Though they're all about dodging social obligations or commitment of any kind, two wily young bachelors attempt to come across as very earnest -- while masquerading as guys named Ernest -- as they set out to win their well-dowried ladies' hearts. Of course, their plan goes hilariously awry. Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a wittily sly romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that still pack a mighty comic punch today. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy the show from the pastoral Austin Gardens, beneath the summer evening sky. Learn More

Wonderful production and terrific cast. The weather was hot, but in a way it corresponded to the heat of the Tennessee courtroom. I would highly recommend it for adult audiences. Younger audience might think the story is passe, but given the political climate in 2012, it remains a very relevant story.
The production features OPFT Artistic Director Jack Hickey.
