Written by Oscar Wilde, Directed by Kirby Wahl Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of manners, this story of love, ambition and invented identity has delighted audiences for more than a century. Jack Worthing has created for himself an alternate existence as his own fictional brother, Earnest, so that he can come to London and escape the limitations of his social role and responsibilities as a country gentleman. When he falls in love with Gwendolen and must seek her mother’s approval of his marriage proposal, many masks will drop away. With unparalleled wit and sharp insight, Wilde asks that we question all received wisdom and think for ourselves.
