The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde • Directed by Pam Downs
Live: Friday, April 22 through Sunday, May 1 at American River College's Mainstage Theatre
Fri/Sat at 7:30 pm • Sundays at 2:00 pm
Streaming: Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 8
Oscar Wilde’s madcap farce about mistaken identities, secret engagements, and lovers’ entanglements has been a theatre staple since it first hit the scene in the 1890s—and now it has finally come to ARC! Full of eccentric characters (in gorgeous costumes), preposterous situations, and rapid fire wit, Earnest is also known for its full-scale skewering of Victorian hypocrisy and social hierarchies. Don't miss your opportunity to see the play considered to be Wilde’s masterpiece!
