The Importance of Being Earnest
is a delightfully witty, clever and lighthearted romp through British high society. It's also one of the best-known comedic plays of all time. Magenta Theater Company presents Oscar Wilde's inside look at the comic hypocrisy of Victorian manners at Vancouver's Magenta Theater. Samuel Summer and Aaron Filyaw play two young bachelors pretending to be earnest -- and Ernest -- as they try to win their ladies' hearts. When Algernon finds out his friend "Ernest" is really named Jack and leading a double life, he decides to get in on the action too. Pretty soon, "Ernest" is everywhere and Jack and Algernon's plans go hilariously awry. Wilde's one-liners and double entendres are as laugh-out-loud funny today as they were when the play was originally written.
