“The Importance of Being Ernest” will be presented on the main stage at the Kirtland Center Sept. 20 -22. The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, by Oscar Wilde, is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play treats serious institutions such as marriage with overt, satirical triviality. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde’s most enduringly popular play.Cast is as follows:
Mr. John “Jack” Worthington -Dan Ragan
