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

If you have seen Tom Stoppard plays before then you know to expect to be confounded, confused and delighted in about equal measures. Though billed as two one act plays, they are actually related. "Cahoots's Macbeth" will make no sense without having first seen "Dogg's Hamlet" ... which is not to say that either will make any sense anyway! The cast did a wonderful job. Some jokes were perhaps carried a bit too far, but, well, this is Tom Stoppard, so that is to be expected.
This production is recommended for those ages six and older.
