The Importance of Being Ernest

by Oscar Wilde

Directed by Kyle Haden
Comedy, Farce
CRT Mainstage   MAP

It’s 1895 and Jack Worthing is engaged–that is if he can convince his potential mother-in-law to accept him. And that might prove difficult since his fiancé thinks his name is Ernest. Oh, and he doesn’t know who his parents are. Not to mention his ward thinks she’s ALSO engaged to Ernest. Oh dear! Mistaken identities and the search for one’s true self frame Oscar Wilde’s most famous comedy of manners.
