The Importance of Henry Carr
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Jun 14, 2018

Unlike the other the major characters in Travesties, the real Henry Carr holds little claim to fame. Stoppard learned about Carr and became intrigued by a real-life incident mentioned in a biography of James Joyce. In Zurich during World War I, Joyce worked with an English theatre to produce Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. Joyce cast a mix of professionals and amateurs, including Henry Carr, an Englishman living in exile, as the lead role of Algernon. Apparently, Carr gave an enthusiastic performance, but afterwards, a small financial dispute with Joyce escalated into dueling lawsuits. Carr sued Joyce for reimbursement on clothes he bought as his costume; Joyce counter-sued Carr for money owed on five tickets. Carr lost his case and was further punished by Joyce when he named an unlikeable character in Ulysses after Carr. Stoppard knew little more about the real Henry Carr while writing Travesties; however, after its 1974 London premiere, a surprise letter from Carr's widow provided more details of the real man's life.

BWW Review: THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is Wilde and Wonderful at The Grandel
by Tanya Seale - Jul 17, 2018

Insight Theatre is an equity theatre in its 11th season, and Artistic Director Maggie Ryan says she has wanted to produce The Importance of Being Earnest for years. 'I delight in the language of this play,' she says of the classic farce. It's a 'trivial comedy for serious people,' which showcases playwright Oscar Wilde's intellectual genius. This is quite simply a brilliant play for smart audiences that stands the test of time. It overflows with hilarious double entendre and euphemisms aplenty, and if you've never indulged yourself in seeing it, make plans now to do so, as we can all delight in this spectacular performance, directed by Ed Reggi.
