The Importance of Being Earnest

Earnestly Yours

You won't need an alibi (well, obviously you'll need this Alibi for all the info) to get away from it all at The Vortex Theatre this Friday, April 21. See The Importance of Being Earnest, a scandalous play making fun of Victorian moral values like social codes, courting (i.e. sexual restraint) and elitism. Follow Jack Worthing—a man leading a double life—as he leaves his alternate identity to find love. In this scandalous tale, while being pursued by his ward, Jack proclaims his love for another woman as his alter-ego, Ernest. To marry the woman, Jack must reveal his true identity to his friend—and cousin of his beloved—Algernon Moncrieff. While telling Algernon about his “real” life, Algernon's interest is piqued at the description of Jack's ward. The play follows the men awkwardly navigating romance, truth and friendship. See the play Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm until May 14. (Megan Reneau)

It is simply a joy. One reviewer of the original production called it "an absolutely willful expression of an irrepressibly witty personality"
