Canceled: The Importance of Being Earnest

Lake Charles Little Theatre

Back

[Updated 5.13.2020. - Event Canceled]

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST... a farcical comedy in which the protagonists
maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social
conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats
institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Some contemporary
reviews praised the play's humour and the culmination of Wilde's artistic career, while others
were cautious about its lack of social messages. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped
make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.
