Oscar Wilde was a writer with brilliance to burn, but even he never surpassed The Importance of Being Earnest, perhaps the wittiest, cleverest and looniest play to ever grace the stage. Called a "trivial comedy for serious people," Wilde's masterpiece finds two young bachelors, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, taking on the same "Ernest" alias in hopes of wooing their ladies. The scheme, of course, goes comically awry. The formidable Lady Bracknell is then brought in to help sort things out. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film with Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Now Victor Pappas, the world-renowned director, helms an exciting new production for the Seattle Shakespeare Company. Learn More

It was great to see a Shakespeare play I had never seen. The Seattle Shakespeare Company does an excellent job with all the productions we have seen.
Bred for the battlefield, the triumphant soldier Coriolanus discovers he is out of his depths when elected to the Roman Senate where the politics can be twice as treacherous as warfare. Behind his meteoric rise is his powerful mother who raised him to be a warrior of no equal. Shakespeare makes politics personal in this tragedy by plumbing the depths of emotions between mother and son, pride and patriotism, ego and honor.
