Masque Theatre’s first production of the 2013 season is Oscar Wilde’s classic farcical comedy, “The Importance of Being Earnest.” It was first performed in 1895 at the St. James's Theatre in London and has been revived many times since.
Oscar Wilde’s classic farcical comedy is a tale of mistaken identities. Jack is "Ernest" to his love, Gwendolen. Algernon is "Ernest" to his love, Cecily. When Jack returns to his country house unexpectedly to announce "Ernest's" sudden death in Paris, he is disagreeably surprised to learn that "Ernest" is at that very moment in the house. Thus, the comedic dance begins!
Directed by Richard Coppinger, the cast includes Matt Bravo as John Worthing, Derrick Buchanan as Algernon Moncrieff, Gina Giordano as Gwendolen Fairfax, Shanelle Bell as Cecily Cardew, Mike Knapp as Lane, Leslie Strange as Lady Bracknell, Petra Sussman as Miss Prism, Charlie Strange as Dr. Chasuble and Dale Noss as Merriman.
