Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining comedy sparkles with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations. This ‘trivial comedy for serious people’ features two carefree bachelors, Jack and Algernon, each with a carefully hidden double life. But when Algernon discovers that Jack has been posing as a man named Ernest to escape to the city, he promptly travels to Jack’s country estate to pose as the fictional figure himself. Nonsensical scenarios ensue with whimsical ingénues, jealous fiancées, indomitable dowagers, and the most famous handbag in theatre history.

"THE IMPORTANCE OF EARNEST is a rollicking satire in which nothing is sacred. Presented in three acts, this merry and entertaining boondoggle through life in “the good old (Victorian) days” will keep you laughing. Helmed by Michael Marchak, the talented cast seem to enjoy the play as much as the audience."

"The direction by Michael Marchak is fast-paced and crisp, and the actors, so great. The play, a bit daunting at first, at two hours, 20 minutes, with two intermissions, moves so quickly, that time passes in a flash. Wilde’s dialogue is witty and the actors are up to it."

"This play is a long one, stretching two and a half hours with two ten-minute intermissions, but it’s quite entertaining and, as you know, time just flies when you’re having fun."

"Indeed the entire cast do an excellent job, the energy is high and the gloriousness of one of the world's most adored gods of literature fully honored as the actors trip lightly through the delicious minefield that is Oscar Wilde at his absolute best."

"can’t think of a single other Victorian-era comedy more agelessly entertaining than The Importance Of Being Earnest, and though the Oscar Wilde chef-d-oeuvre has now reached the advanced age of one hundred twenty-four, at Crown City Theatre it seems scarcely a day older than its 20something protagonists."
