Oscar Wilde’s brilliantly clever comedic masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest, was once called by critic W.H. Auden, “the only pure verbal opera in English.” Earnest tells the story of two young gentlemen in London, who each live a double-life, creating elaborate deceptions to find some balance in their lives. Oscar Wilde’s brilliant comedy captures audiences with both wit and charm while capturing the struggle of four passionate lovers trying to conform to expectations.
