Description

Directed by Shawn Douglass

Featuring Artistic Associates Annabel Armour, Linda Gillum, and David Darlow (as Lady Bracknell)

When they are caught in their public lies, the result is one of the funniest plays ever written. Wilde dishes up delicious criticisms of identity, manners and the customs of courtship, delivered with his outrageous wit and the sting of laughter.
