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

Love’s Labours Lost is one of Shakespeare’s lightest comedies, a story of the war between the sexes and the urge to resist, and to succumb to, temptation. Sex in the City, as rendered by the Bard. A first-time production by Oak Park Festival Theatre. Remember your first time? Directed by Jack Hickey.
