The Importance of Being Earnest
November 22 - December 14, 2013
The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s most enduring comedy, comes to life this fall at the hands of IRNE and Elliot Norton-nominated Moonbox Productions. Dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff weave a tangled web of mistaken identity in order to win the hearts of the women they love while skirting the ever-watchful and disapproving eye of Jack’s aunt, the formidable Lady Bracknell. It is a masterful satire of Victorian-era propriety, and a witty expose’ of what Wilde saw as the moral hypocrisy lying at the core of the Victorian establishment. It is widely considered Wilde’s best work, and was his last before his life was upended by a conviction of “gross indecency” for his relationship with another man. Performances run Thursday through Sunday, November 22nd through December 14th at the BCA Plaza Theatre, 539 Tremont St., Boston. More information at www. Moonbox.org.
