Wit and innuendo abound in this satirical comedy that follows the exploits of two young men –Jack and Algernon – each masquerading as a libertine named Ernest in order to pursue his unsuspecting conquest. When they are caught in the act, a true farce unfolds, and a very real Ernest is revealed. The turn of the century brought us some of the most treasured and clever tales in literature, and those of the great Oscar Wilde are no exception. No stuffy Victorians here!
*Appropriate for ages 8 and up


And join us for Girls (and Boys) Gone Oscar Wilde Cabaret on July 13!
