The Importance of Being Earnest By Oscar Wilde

A BU Players Production, Directed by Professor David A. Miller

Show time: Wednesday – Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 3pm

Two clever bachelors, Algernon Moncrief and Jack Worthing, create double lives in a chaotic story of mistaken identity in The Importance of Being Earnest. In hopes of courting the enticing Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, they each create an elegant ruse that unravels with hilarious consequences, particularly when Lady Bracknell enters the picture… This charming farce – a satire of Victorian life – is often regarded as Oscar Wilde’s most beloved play.

MISS PRISM. No married man is ever attractive except to his wife.
CHASUBLE. And often, I’ve been told, not even to her.
