A pair of wily young bachelors pretend to be straight-forward and earnest -- while masquerading as two guys named Ernest -- in a scheme to win their well-dowried ladies' hearts. Of course, their plan goes hilariously awry, leaving them scrambling to keep up the subterfuge. Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a witty and sly romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that still pack a mighty comic punch today. The Importance of Being Earnest gets Anderlin Arts' 2016 season started off with a bang at Everett PUD Auditorium.
Run time is one hour and 45 minutes plus a 15-minute intermission.
