The Importance of Being Earnest

B-term '15

by Oscar Wilde

November 19-21

The Little Theatre

Wondering how to find the Little Theatre?

What exactly does it mean to be Earnest?
And why should a man even bother to be Earnest?
Is it really matter of vital importance?
According to Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, a bachelor need not be Earnest at all — unless, of course, the woman he loves demands it of him...
Thus begins the hilarious quest of these two young Victorian-Era gentlemen to win two unexpectedly hard-to-get women’s hearts in what is possibly "the wittiest comedy in the English language" (Samuel French).
