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

Considering this is the traveling production that will go into high school, the performance was outstanding, I thing the characters were just the right mix of "teenagery" vs. Shakespearean. I laughed, I cried, what more can one expect from Shakespeare.
In the midst of an historical bitter feud, passionate young love emerges. Defying their parents, Romeo and Juliet marry and plot to run away together only to be thwarted at every turn. This classic play is a swashbuckling drama and the greatest love story ever told.
