The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

While Othello will have you on the edge of your seat, The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde will have you literally gasping from laughter! A British comedy set in Victorian London, the play follows two sets of lovers: Jack, Algernon, Gwendolyn, and Cecily, who we see live out a comedy of errors with the help of fake identities, copious amounts of tea, and of course, muffins. Who will you become to woo the one you love?
Directed by Devon Glover and James Cougar Canfield, respectively, the shows are sure to be a hit. Featuring FlagShakes local favorites, and a few new out of town faces, the acting will be high caliber, as always. A bit afraid of Shakespeare? Our professional actors do the hard work so you don’t have to. We work hard on text to make sure our audiences can understand every word, and with direct audience address and universal lighting, you will feel immersed in the world of the play.
