The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Play for Serious People

In pursuit of romance, both men concoct an elaborate deception. This buoyant comedy of manners will keep you anticipating a fresh twist of plot from one moment to the next. Featuring Brandon Whitehead (pictured) as Oscar Wilde, working his way into his own play.
