THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST Coming To Adelphi PAC
Oscar Wilde's classic farce, The Importance of Being Earnest, comes to Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Tuesday, October 29, through Sunday, November 3. Performed by the students of the Department of Theatre, the well-known British play combines pointed wit and sharp social satire. The production is directed by Brian Rose.
Friendly rivals Algernon and Jack each discover that the other has a secret identity. The lies and the confusion keep going when Jack's secret alter ego courts Algernon's cousin in the city, while Algernon uses his secret self to woo Jack's ward in the country. Both women have other plans in mind and announce that they could only fall in love with a man who is named...Earnest!
Come enjoy the comedy of confused identities, crisscrossing lovers, desperate christenings, lost babies in handbags, and some of the British theatre's most memorable language and characters. The Importance of Being Earnest is sure to entertain during its seven-show run.
