About The Importance of Being Earnest
The Importance Of Being Earnest weaves a story of hidden double lives and their hilarious consequences. Bachelors Algernon Moncrieff and John (Jack) Worthing each take on the name Earnest in order to woo their respective loves, Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, two young ladies who are certain they could never be happy married to a man named something other than Earnest. But even the cleverest of men will have trouble keeping up this ruse, especially with the formidable Lady Bracknell around. Delightfully witty, Oscar Wilde's “trivial comedy for serious people” is sure to entertain.
Corban University Theatre Arts provides a platform for students to use their talents in creative productions that display the truth of the human condition, the truth of the world we live in, and often the truth of redemption. We do this by imitating the variety found in creation: staging comedies, tragedies, dramas, and musicals dedicated to furthering themes that affirm God’s perspective on this world.
