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

Great production and a lot of talent displayed! Frustrastion of working with a limited budget. Costumes were great given what they had, but it was obvious the production has no money. This is typical of small community theatre. The sets, and technical effects are minimal. I have seen theatres like this not survive. It is such a shame. If you appreciate the art of live theatre, come out and support this worthy group, in an effort to keep them alive and to facilitate their ongoing success and growth. This is definitely one of the better ones. We, the community are responsible to keep them going!!!

This play has mild innuendo, but is otherwise appropriate for all audiences.
