Classical Theatre Company to Present THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, 4/9-27

CTC will present the last installment of their season of English language masterpieces by way of The Importance of Being Earnest. Oscar Wilde's final, and most masterful, play, The Importance of Being Earnest deals with a common theme in Wilde's work: the leading of double lives. Socialite Jack Worthing and dilettante friend Algernon Moncrieff create fictitious alter egos for themselves in order to buck society's stifling restrictions placed upon them. Hilarity ensues when their love interests, Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, fall in love with their false personas. Full of witty repartee and scathing social commentary, The Importance of Being Earnest, will bring down the house with laughter.

This production has many firsts for CTC. CTC's founding Executive Artistic Director, John Johnston, will take the stage for the Company for the first time, portraying the role of Jack Worthing. Alley Theatre Company Member, Emily Neves, will be making her CTC debut in the role of Cecily Cardew, and Classical Theatre Company Artist Thomas Prior will make his Houston area directing debut with this production.

The Classical Theatre Company is dedicated to boldly re-envisioning classical drama on the stage, in the community, and in the classroom through engaging and enlightening plays - bringing them new life and relevance while maintaining the integrity that the works deserve.
