COLUMBIA, KY - The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will present the classic The Importance of Being Earnest November 1, 2, 3, & 5, will be performed at 7pmCT, November 1, 2, 3 and at 2pmCT November 5, 2017, at V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY.
The play is directed by LWC Assistant Professor of Theatre, Robert Brock. Tickets are $5 for general public, $3 for LWC faculty/staff, and free to LWC students.
The Importance of Being Earnest, easily Oscar Wilde's most notable comedy, is about two friends, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff. The show's action centers around the friends' new identities that have been invented to court Cecily Cardew and Gwedolyn Fairfax. The question is, will these two bachelors' "bunburying" get them the women of their dreams, or just bring trouble?
"Wilde called the show a trivial comedy for serious people," Brock said. "It is, I think, one of the best comedies ever written."
While the play itself is regarded as a classic piece of American theatre, it hits today's audiences with hilarious comedy and wit.
"This play is filled with wit and puns and a lot of fun," he said. "It's a farcical romp around the idea of secret lives and people who have invented fictitious friends so they can go visit them a get away from their own lives."
Brock ends by telling us that the show is just "delightfully funny" and that audiences "won't be able to contain their laughter" from start to finish.
The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will present The Importance of Being Earnest November 1, 2, 3, & 5, will be performed at 7pmCT, November 1, 2, 3 and at 2pmCT November 5, 2017, at V.P.
