"It had always been a girlish dream of mine to love someone whose name was Ernest. There is something in that name that seems to inspire absolute confidence." - Cecily
We open our 2012/2013 season with Oscar Wilde's witty masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. Set in Victorian England, the play is a farcical social satire on the triviality of social institutions, and is one of the most famous theatrical comedies of all time.
The play follows two young gentleman, Jack and Algernon, who, in pursuit of their ladies Gwendolyn and Cecily, both assume the same alternate identity: Earnest Worthing. In spectacular fashion, their double lives collide at Jack's country manor and their deceptions are revealed. Cecily and Gwendolyn are both engaged to a man named Earnest Worthing, but neither Jack nor Algernon is Earnest at all!
Directed by Black Hole alumnus, Kelly Jenken, this most elegant Comedy of Manners has stood the test of time and appeals to people of all age groups and sensitivities. For over one hundred years it has had audiences roaring with laughter.
Performances at the Black Hole Theatre, lower level of University College, Dysart Rd. on the University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus.
