The Department of Theatre and Film presents Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” Dec. 3-6. 

Performances will be held in the Joe E. Brown Theatre in University Hall. Evening performances Thursday through Saturday will begin at 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday matinees will begin at 2 p.m.

Considered Wilde’s greatest dramatic achievement, “Earnest” is a witty satire of Victorian social hypocrisy.  The plot revolves around Jack Worthington and Algernon Moncrieff (and their secret alter-egos) in what many consider to be the most ingenious case of "manufactured" mistaken identity ever put into a play. This production may not be suitable for all audiences.

“The Importance of Being Earnest” is directed by Dr. Jonathan Chambers, theatre and film.

Single tickets are $12 for students/adults, $6 for children under 12, and $5 for senior citizens aged 65 and older. Group rates are available. Contact the theatre box office at 2-2719 for more information or to purchase tickets.
