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

By Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

February 12-March 9 2014
Gothic thriller, passionate romance, and a cautionary tale rolled into one, Mary Shelley’s seminal horror story of an obsessed young scientist and his monstrous creation has become a world-wide cultural icon. Book-It Adaptor/Director David Quicksall, who created the breathtaking Moby-Dick, or The Whale for the company, will helm this production.
Truth Like the Sun
By Jim Lynch
Adapted by Jane Jones & Kevin McKeon, directed by Jane Jones
April 23-May 18 2014
Book-It is thrilled to produce the latest of local author Jim Lynch’s three novels. Roger Morgan was a smooth-talking young promoter who built Seattle’s most famous icon for the 1962 fair. Thirty-nine years later in the shadow of his Space Needle, the Seattle raconteur is a mayoral candidate dogged by an unscrupulous young reporter looking for long-buried dirt. “Enveloping and propulsive,” Lynch’s latest novel aims a light at the extraordinary events that put Seattle on the map.
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
By Michael Chabon
Abridged version by Jeff Schwager, directed by Myra Platt
June 4-July 13 2014
In 1939 Joe Kavalier smuggles himself, Houdini-style, out of Nazi-occupied Prague and reappears in New York to live with his cousin, Sammy Clay. It’s the golden age of comic books and the ambitious pair—the storyteller and the artist—invent the perfect superhero for America on the brink of the Second World War. Chabon’s tale of escape, transformation, magic, and moxie is a modern-day epic—Book-It will present this novel as a theatrical event complete with dinner break.
