Description

The Department of Theatre and Dance at Gustavus Adolphus College is proud to present The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy For Serious Persons by Oscar Wilde. In Wilde's classic comedy of manners, elegant repartee masks a sharp satire of Victorian "morality. eThough Wilde often claimed that art should be trivial, Earnest mocks the rigid performances of class, gender and sexuality that society (still) expects us to play. Witty, fun, and slyly subversive, The Importance of Being Earnest still rocks the house.

Directed by Amy Seham, The Importance of Being Earnest will be performed in the Anderson Theatre February 19-21 at 8:00 p.m., with a matinee performance on February 22 at 2 p.m.
