A note from Co-Director, Frank Thompson: Written in late Victorian England, audiences have continued to find fun, frivolity, and farce in this Oscar Wilde classic. It’s really a delight to explore the characters Wilde so adeptly conjures, and the hilariously intertwining paths they take. These people live in a time when propriety was everything, so the various misunderstandings, simmering passions, and keeping up of appearances all collide to create a tale that still speaks to the human condition, even a century later. This is the original four-act version of Earnest, and the original running time was over three hours! In a nod to how we consume content in the 21st century, we are presenting these four acts in an episodic format. These are some difficult times indeed, and keeping the arts alive via whatever means we can is vital. It is in the arts that we find our humanity, our common ground…the very beauty and meaning of life itself.
