From the venue:

Georgia Shakespeare is restaging Oscar Wilde’s farcical The Importance of Being Earnest. The play — a roundabout of hidden identities involving two hedonistic friends, both pretending to be someone else and both trying to capture their respective loves — is a classic in both senses: it’s more than 100 years old, first performed in the 1890s, and it’s very funny. (Sample line: “In married life, three is company, and two is none.”) The new production hopes to capture the humor but not the age and includes gender-bent versions of the imperious Lady Bracknell and Lane, the servant.
