The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde

Jurkowitz Theatre

November 9-19, 2022

Though written in 1895, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest remains one of funniest and most engaging comedies ever written. The play tells the story of three couples all trying to unlock the secret to their beloved’s heart even if that may involve a little deception, quite a bit of flattery and a ton of the wittiest dialogue ever written. The play is filled with quotable lines like, “In matters of great importance, style, not sincerity is the vital thing, or “to be natural is such a difficult pose to keep up,” unforgettable characters, delightfully twisted plots and exceptional wit–all of which have made this play a perennial hit on stages worldwide; it remains as relevant and fun today as when it was first performed.
