(12/7/2018) - Everyman Theatre's next show in the 2018-2019 season is The Importance of Being Earnest, a light-hearted romantic comedy packed with twists, turns, and witty repartee. Directed by Joseph W. Ritsch Artistic Director of Rep Stage, the tale of worlds turned topsy-turvy with assumed identities lampoons the absurdity of Victorian virtues. The Everyman production showcases a subtext that is as relevant today as it was to its intended 19th-century audience-Wilde's 'bachelor' compatriots-inside jokes abound through subtly scripted details. The play runs December 4 - December 30, 2018. Photo Flash: SELKIE Premieres At The Wild Project by BWW News Desk - Off-Off-Broadway
