The Importance of Being Earnest

April 17 - May 17, 2020

Bagley Wright Theater

One of the funniest and most beautifully crafted comedies

The Times UK

Jack Worthing is in a bit of a pickle. As a baby, he was abandoned in a train station, and now, in order to marry his beloved Gwendolen, he must prove his lineage to her eagle-eyed mother, Lady Bracknell. To make matters worse, Jack has been known to the entire town—and Gwendolen—as “Ernest” in his desire to lead an exciting double-life, and Gwendolen’s about to get the shock of her life.
