ODU Rep Presents “The Importance of Being Earnest”
February 14 at 7:30 pm - February 24 at 9:30 pm$15.00
The Importance of Being Earnest
A comedy of confusion by Oscar Wilde
Produced by ODURep
If your name is Earnest, does that make you earnest? If you aren’t earnest, can you still be named Earnest? In a totally vapid world, does it matter if you’re earnest, or Earnest, at all?
Can audiences laugh and think at the same time, whatever their names? Yes!
Oscar Wilde’s comedy of confusion is one the smartest plays ever written, and one of the funniest. As characters lose themselves in mistaken identities and idiotic mishaps, the audience loses itself in head riddles and gut laughter. No playwright has ever created wittier lines for the stage. The Importance of Being Earnest is a tongue twister for the mind that, unlike the human brain, only gets better with age!
